Survey of engagement within the EU Health Policy Platform is closed and SIP received the 2nd highest number of votes of all candidates! 
Throughout this process, we had the opportunity to see that interest for the social impact of pain really spans across many different types of stakeholders. 
The European Commission has given the SIP platform the opportunity to make the SIP Expert Group, on the EU Health Policy Platform, a “Thematic Network on SIP”. The announcement of the selected Thematic Networks is expected by end of December.
What does this mean?

Within the EU Health Policy Platform, the SIP Expert Group will move into the public domain. This means that stakeholders will not have to register anymore to see the platform’s content – which will enable greater public outreach!
In addition, the content of the platform will feed into a draft joint statement – a useful tool in pushing the Commission into legislative action on the issue of Pain. 

We want to thank all endorser of the SIP platform who have voted for SIP as a Thematic Network!

THANK YOU for voting!
