On the 19 November 2009 the Irish health organization "CPI - Chronic Pain Ireland" stablished 8 rights to improve the life of people suffering from severe or chronic pain, the "Charter of rights against unnecessary pain". The aim of CPI is to provide information and support to those living with chronic pain, their families and friends.

The "Charter of Rights for people living with pain" claims that:

-Every individual has the right to know that pain does not necessarily have to be put up with -Much suffering can be alleviated by adopting the right treatment -The right not to suffer unnecessarily must be recognised and respected as well in hospital wards as in long term facilities.

Furthermore, this "Charter of rights against unnecessary pain" intends to inform citizens about pain and promote its prevention, control and treatment.
