International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP) Declares the Global Year Against Pain in Women
Date:10/14/2007

ers/agencies about the lack of diagnosis and adequate treatment of chronic pain in women. This will help to:

- Increase awareness of pain conditions predominantly affecting women and help women and healthcare providers recognize signs and symptoms

- Raise awareness of disparities between female/male pain issues

- Empower women to become advocates for themselves and others, by encouraging them to affirm their pain is real and seek proper treatment

- Increase female-specific research

- Encourage the development of new female-specific treatment options

To further these objectives, IASP will initiate a number of national and local activities in conjunction with their 69 local chapters worldwide. A special issue of the IASP journal Pain will be dedicated to pain in women in November 2007. The IASP website will also feature campaign information including local IASP chapter initiatives.

Gender Inequalities in Health Care

Certain pain conditions commonly affecting women often do not receive adequate attention as historically medical research has heavily relied on male populations and conditions affecting them. The result of this male-centric research approach is that women continue to be treated based on studies in which they may not have been adequately represented.

Access to healthcare services, particularly in poverty stricken areas of the developing world, can act as a barrier for women seeking help for pain conditions.

Cultural factors also influence a woman's likelihood of seeking treatment for medical conditions, including pain. For example, in many cultures, women believe that their suffering is part of their role in society. Additionally treatment by a male healthcare provider may also bring shame to a woman's family, forcing her to go without treatment.

Women may also encounter situations where physicians do not believe their pain is real.
