What is the SIP Strategy in 2018?
Many exciting activities related to Societal Impact of Pain (SIP) will take place in 2018. Building on our successes in Europe, we will focus on helping to establish activities at a national level this year.
Some countries have already started to identify key stakeholders representing the SIP partners who might initiate and drive national SIP platforms. Based on a common strategy, the international SIP partners will help them shaping up their national campaigns.
The SIP platform will continue engagement both on the EU and national level, focusing on the following policy hooks:
- Pain as a healthcare indicator
- Pain as a chronic disease
- Pain education
- Pain jobs and social participation
- Pain accompanying other diseases
Depending on existing coalitions, capacities and expertise, the national SIP platforms will be set up to define activities and initiatives which will take place in 2018. More Information here.

We count on the support of our SIP Endorser to make the launch of the SIP national activities a great success!
