"People in chronic pain should not have to suffer in silence. Too often their plight is overlooked or underestimated and together we can do something about that. We need to raise awareness as to the impact that chronic pain can have on people, those who care for them and on their ability to work and enjoy life. Dealing with chronic pain must be put on EU Member States’ health care agenda. It cannot be ignored."
