'Chronic pain is a leading source of human suffering and disability.' 1

One in five Europeans suffers with chronic pain.2 Despite multiple calls to action, pain management remains woefully inadequate, with many sufferers being impacted by psychological and social factors, leading to decreased quality of life.3
