Approximately 20 percent of Europe's adult population, more than 80 million people, suffer from chronic pain, meaning pain which occurs repeatedly over a period of three months or longer. This is more than twice the number of patients with diabetes. Some 9 percent of Europeans experience pain very day. The total direct and indirect costs of chronic pain amount to an estimated 1.5 to 3 percent of total European GDP. It is against this alarming background that the European Pain Federation EFIC and its partners discussed the socioeconomic implications of pain and policy solutions to this burden for individual and societies at the 6th European Symposium "Societal Impact of Pain (SIP 2016): Time for Action" in Brussels. The meeting brought together over 200 pain experts, patients' representatives, and policymakers representing 28 European countries. [more]
