Video about Quality of life and the impact of pain on Maltese citizens
Gertrude A. Buttigieg – Malta Health Network, Malta
In 2017, national organisations Malta Health Network (MHN) and No Pain Foundation (NPF) with the support of SIP Malta started a Research Project to provide data on the extent of chronic pain in Malta and the impact on the day-to-day activities of affected individuals, including social and economic repercussions.
Based on the research, policy recommendations were drawn up and presented in April this year at a big policy conference in Malta. Resulting from the research is also a short video explaining the outcome and importance of pain in Malta.
In the coming year the main focus will be on implementing the policy recommendations.
