Abstract

The mission of the European Headache Federation (EHF) is to improve life for those affected by headache disorders in Europe. Progress depends upon improving access to good headache-related health care for people affected by these disorders. Education about headache-its nature, causes, consequences and management-is a key activity of EHF that supports this aim. It is also important to achieve an organisation of headache-related services within the health systems of Europe in order that they can best deliver care in response to what are very high levels of need. This publication assesses this need, and sets out proposals for service organisation, on three levels, to meet the resultant demand.
