EMHA CALL TO ACTION

Migraine in Europe
Time to act now!

Migraine is a neglected neurological disease that affects over 41 million people in the European Union (EU). It is labelled as the second leading cause of disability in the world and the third in people below 50.

The European Parliament (EP) and its members have a pivotal role to play in tackling the migraine challenges.
EMHA calls upon all national and EU policy makers to fully embrace the migraine challenge and build a supportive environment that will improve the quality of life of EU citizens. 

 

The European Parliament
Migraine Alliance.

An Alliance of Members of the European Parliament advocating to make migraine a European priority and improve the lives of people living with migraine across the European Union.

The Alliance will rally all Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) who agree to help steer policies and initiatives that will improve the quality oflife of EU citizens, contribute to the sustainability of healthcare services and promote the inclusion of people with migraine at all levels (education, work, family life…). 
Joining forces with the European Migraine and Headache Alliance and its 33 members at national level, the MEPs will help tackle these challenges by raising awareness and fostering cross-border EU collaboration.

Raising awareness to change the future under #TheMigraineMovement

Women at work

In 2018 EMHA organised a survey among migraine patients working in 7 EU countries (Ireland, Italy, France, Germany, Portugal, Spain and United Kingdom.
The survey shed light on how women have to juggle between migraine attacks and work.

VIEW PROJECT

The Migraine Assistant

After launching The Migraine Movement Manifesto, from EMHA, we set the goal to inform the largest amount of European migraine sufferers about the existence of that movement, born with the aim of giving them visibility, answers and support.

VIEW PROJECT

Explaining Migraine

We realized that the words we normally use to describe our relationship with migraine simply fall short to convey the true feeling behind. Words like “pain” or “horror”, commonly used to describe a migraine, ended up being generic adjectives that linked our disease to a simple headache.

The Missing Lesson

The lack of medical training is the main barrier for an accurate diagnosis when a possible migraine patient first visits a doctor. In the world, only 4 hours of migraine are studied in medical training.

VIEW PROJECT

Migraine At Work

The objective of this study is to know the situation of migraine workers within the workplace and compare the situation in the different participating countries.
