Welcome to Chronic Pain Australia
Chronic Pain Australia is the national voice for the 3.6 million Australians living with chronic pain. We are a non-profit, non-government, registered organisation founded in 2001. The organisation is driven by a group of committed volunteers advocating to reduce the social and economic barriers to those who live with chronic pain.
National Pain Week 2022
National Pain Week 2022 is Australia’s annual awareness event for chronic pain. National Pain Week takes place in the last week of July each year. In 2022 it will take place from 25th – 31st July 2022.
This year, Chronic Pain Australia is advocating to ensure that all Australians living with chronic pain receive Triple A standards of care – Awareness, Accessibility and Affordability. A key focus of activities for National Pain Week 2022 will be promoting more Awareness of the complex issues identified by our National Pain Survey results.
Chronic Pain Australia is actively seeking sponsors and collaborators for National Pain Week 2022.
