What is EMHA?
The European Migraine & Headache Alliance is a non-profit, patient umbrella group which was launched in 2006. Since then, the Alliance has grown to represent 25 patient groups from across the continent.
The development of European umbrella organisations is a natural progression with more relevance for European nations.
Headache disorders are among the most common disorders of the nervous system. These include tension-type headache (TTH), migraine and chronic daily headache syndromes as well as the more rare disorders, cluster headache and trigeminal neuralgia.

In 2010, EHA launched its Madrid Manifesto for Migraine/ Headache Disorders at the Spanish Parliament to mark European Migraine Day of Action. This document outlined our 5-year objectives to improve migraine management, education and awareness across Europe.
EMHA is the result of the need of making society know the different types of migraine that exist and that currently are not receiving the importance they deserve. EMHA fights for the human rights, that is why is present in activities and events that are relevant for headache issues. Trying to give voice for those ones who need it. EMHA works as well in finding a way to mitigate migraine, by joining forces and strengthening partnerships which are aiming the same objective.
