Suomen Kipu ry – Finnish Pain Association
The Finnish Pain Association was founded in 1991 when a group of pain related people recognised the need for an own association to support interest of people living with chronic pain. The aim of the association is to improve the conditions of people living with chronic pain by increasing the knowledge of pain and of its impact on everyday life. The Finnish Pain Association aspires to develop cooperation between home, work, environment, politicians and especially with healthcare organizations. Important elements are information, skills and the willingness to help.
The Finnish Pain Association is a member of the Pain Alliance in Europe (PAE).
