Global Year against Pain in the Joints 2016
2016 is the Global Year against Pain in the Joints.

The first “European Year against Pain” (EYAP) was launched by EFIC in October 2012. The yearly campaign is dedicated to increase public awareness of the challenges of chronic pain. The EYAP campaign will highlight the difficult problems related to neuropathic pain, uniting patient support groups, doctors and researchers to improve the recognition and treatment of these multiple conditions.The campaign will also be backed up by a broad variety of initiatives in the 37 countries covered by EFIC. Click here to download the official press release for the EYAP 2016.

The EFIC Committee on the European Year Against Pain consists of the following members: Bart Morlion, Serge Perrot and Dan Levin (IASP liaison)
