"EFNA endorses the SIP initiative as there is a clear alignment between the policy outcomes we aim to achieve through then MEP Interest Group on Brain, Mind and Pain and those being pursued by this platform."

Donna Walsh
Executive Director

Donna Walsh is the Executive Director of the European Federation of Neurological Associations (EFNA).

Donna’s background is in journalism but she began her career working in patient advocacy on a national platform as Information and Communications Officer at the Migraine Association of Ireland. This led to her first involvement at the European level via the European Headache Alliance – where she worked as Coordinator for a number of years. She then moved on to take up her current position within EFNA in 2012.

Since then she has been actively involved as EFNA stepped up its advocacy activities at the Brussels Institutions which culminated in February 2015 with the launch of the MEP Interest Group on Brain, Mind and Pain.

Donna also oversees EFNA’s other workstreams in the areas of awareness, empowerment and engagement. This includes EFNA’s Training Initiatives for Neurology Advocates and their Together Under the Umbrella awareness campaign.

Donna represents EFNA externally – amongst others – at the European Brain Council, European Academy of Neurology (Liaison Committee), European Society of Radiology (Patient Advisory Group) and within SIP.
