Ensuring equitable access to high-quality treatment in brain, mind and pain disorders

The next meeting of the MEP Interest Group on Brain, Mind and Pain will take place on November 22nd at the European Parliament in Brussels. The meeting will look at ways to ensure equitable access to high-quality treatment in brain, mind and pain disorders and will examine case-studies from across Europe.

Access to quality healthcare is a basic citizen’s right – yet it is still not a reality for all of us.  Large health inequalities persist in the EU and many patients do not have access to effective treatment for neurological and pain disorders. Uncontrolled symptoms worsen the personal and economic impact of these disorders, new and better treatments are urgently needed.

How can we ensure universal access for all to effective and affordable medicines, health and care services, and how can we create conditions to better manage brain and pain disease and prevent avoidable health deterioration?

The MEP Interest Group on Brain, Mind and Pain is a joint initiative of EFNA and Pain Alliance Europe (PAE).

We will be joined on November 22nd by European Academy of Neurology & the European Pain Federation.

The final agenda is available here.
