“A matter of human rights”

“A matter of human rights”

In March 2012 the article “Insufficient Paint Therapy – A matter of human rights” written by Rolf-Detlef Treede and Norbert van Rooij appeared in the „Gesellschaftspolitische Kommentare“ No 3/12.

The article discusses that pain is one of the major health problems in Germany. Several initiatives to make access to the treatment of pain as a right have already passed the revue. In terms of the degree to which an appropriate pain therapy concept has been implemented, Germany is at the lower end of the scale. For Germany, the DGSS has established a national action plan to combat pain. Now the European Parliament (EP) may soon also actively take up the issue of pain after a number EP members called for a “Road Map for Action” in the course of SIP.
