Chronic pain is under-recognized and under-treated.
It affects people of all ages. In Canada, one in five people suffer daily from chronic pain. It is a ‘silent epidemic’.
Pain BC is a non-profit organization formed in 2008.
We are made up of patients, health care providers, and leaders from academia, members of relevant non-governmental organizations and others.We have a shared passion for reducing the burden of pain and for making positive change in the health care system in British Columbia.If you'd like to be part of reducing the burden of pain in BC, get involved.
