Headache and Migraine Day

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), migraine is the second most disabling disease in people under 50. In Switzerland alone, 1.2 million women, men and children suffer from migraine; worldwide, the number is as high as 1 billion. Despite this, migraine is still often trivialized and not taken seriously . As a result, even in Switzerland, only 20-30% of all sufferers receive an appropriate diagnosis and the help they deserve.

Are you one of them? Or do you have relatives and friends who suffer from headaches?

    *The European Headache and Migraine Day was founded in 2006 by self-help groups, pain researchers and doctors. With the European Headache and Migraine Day, attention is drawn to the enormous physical and mental burdens as well as unjustified discrimination of headache sufferers in many European countries with various campaigns.
