Each year in June headache communities worldwide come together to raise awareness of Migraine.

What is migraine

 Migraine is a complex neurologic disease that has been identified as the leading cause of years lived with disability in people under the age of 50 years. It directly affects more than 1 billion people worldwide with huge socioeconomic impact. 

In recent years there have been many advances on both the acute and preventive treatment of migraine. 

Migraine Awareness Month

 The IHS Electronic Media and Education Committees are proud to present this Migraine Awareness Campaign in honour of Migraine Awareness Month, held each year in June.

 The IHS Migraine Awareness Campaign focuses on educating Healthcare Professionals, offering the essential information to assist them in managing patients with migraine.

 In this campaign IHS members present short videos in their own languages on ‘What is migraine’, ‘How to diagnose migraine’ and ‘How to treat migraine’. The content behind these videos was developed to raise awareness and promote education amongst clinicians and healthcare professionals worldwide.
