Migraine is a chronic condition affecting approximately 12 percent of adults worldwide with a prevalence three times higher in women. According to the World Health Organization, it is the third most common disease in the world and the second most disabling disease, and thus entails a huge human, social and economic cost. Despite clear epidemiological data, migraine sufferers are still seen as “invisible”. The aim of this initiative is to educate the population on the importance of early recognition of symptoms, and thus timely access to specific diagnostic and treatment pathways for a better quality of life for patients.
