SIP Joint Statement presented in the EU Parliament
The MEP Interest Group on Brain, Mind, and Pain organised on the 21st of November a new meeting in the EU Parliament hosted by MEP Merja Kyllönen and MEP Marian Harkin, in order to review the achievements of the group and to propose the policy focus areas for 2019. As the representatives of SIP, we were invited to the discussion whose main topic was "The Future of Health in Europe". We presented the Joint Statement on the Societal Impact of Pain, highlighting the recommendations the document contains but also inviting the participants to endorse and use the joint statement as a tool in their organisations' advocacy activities. We are convinced the Joint Statement on SIP is a valuable, to-date collection of policy and good practices in chronic pain which points out to the gaps that need to be addressed by the decision-makers who are responsible for putting health - and pain in particular, on their agenda.
