Policy & Campaigns
We campaign to improve health care, promote understanding and ensure a good quality of life for migraine sufferers in the UK. We know that by working with patients, health professionals, government departments, the NHS, and key influencers in the health and research fields we can reduce the burden of migraine together. This is why we position ourselves at the forefront of policy development and campaigning on the issues affecting people with migraine.
What matters most?
We want your help to develop a clear and concise summary of what matters most to people living with migraine and other headache disorders
Migraine research is vastly under-prioritised and under-resourced. A significant increase in funding is required to address the burden of migraine
Education of health professionals
Education and awareness of migraine must be improved to ensure that migraine is identified, diagnosed and treated properly
Diagnosis and treatment
Despite the prevalence of migraine, diagnosis and treatment is poor with only 50% of sufferers receiving a diagnosis
Mismanagement and misconceptions of migraine place an avoidable burden on employees, employers and the economy
Children and young people with migraine should not be put at a disadvantage at school and in obtaining their education
