No Pain Foundation

No Pain Foundation was established in Malta at the end of 2014 to create a non-profit organisation for the purpose of carrying
out social, educational as well as research and development activities in the field of pain management and pain therapies.
All our activities are aimed at improving the quality of life of patients suffering from chronic pain by raising doctors’ and citizens’ awareness and supporting patients suffering from chronic pain, as we know few patients are managed by pain specialists and many receive inadequate pain management.
The No Pain Foundation also aims to influence health related policies and practices for the welfare of patients suffering from chronic pain.
NPF is affiliated with Pain Alliance Europe (PAE), a Pan-European umbrella organisation of 39 national associations in 18 EU Member States. It is a contributing member of the European Pain Federation-EFIC, a multidisciplinary professional organisation in the field of pain research and medicine consisting of the 37 chapters of the International Association for the Study of Pain-IASP.
The three main objectives we have embraced are education (of doctors, citizens and patients), research and care.
With regards to education we organise congresses, lectures, events to raise doctors’ education and patients’/citizens’ awareness.
No Pain Foundation is dedicated to encouraging pain therapy management research while supporting collaborations and projects. No Pain Foundation also promotes its own research.
Our first mission is to support Maltese patients through international doctors’ opinions, we support their travel and pay for the visits (depending on the funds No Pain Foundation has at that moment), and we support their families and raise awareness on patients’ rights. Our dream is to open a Pain Management House in Malta where international pain specialists can treat people who are suffering from chronic pain free of charge,. During their stay in Malta these foreign doctors can teach and update Maltese practitioners on how to manage and treat chronic pain.
