President’s Message

Happy New Year and welcome to the 2021 Global Year About Back Pain, where we focus on bringing together the global community of researchers, clinicians, those living with pain, and the general public to better understand the nature of back pain and the utility of available treatment modalities. Supporting IASP’s mission of working towards global pain relief, this year’s theme seeks to identify barriers and solutions for improving back pain across the spectrum, from prevention to diagnosis to management across all age groups.
As pain professionals, our duty is to communicate pain prevention and treatment methods to patients and the general public, ensuring proper and adequate care of those suffering from back pain. We have the obligation to equip patients with tools to manage their pain and to improve their quality of life.
Patient engagement has been a priority in IASP’s strategy. The Global Alliance of Pain Patient Advocates (GAPPA), integrated into various IASP activities, will be an essential element of Global Year events, incorporating those living with pain. 
Geared towards researchers, clinicians, and back pain sufferers, the exciting lineup of 2021 Global Year resources includes fact sheets, webinars, events, and more. Additionally, PAIN and PAIN Reports will highlight Global Year themed articles throughout the year. All Global Year content is free, and I encourage you to share it.
We have strategically improved engagement with 94 IASP chapters, and I invite you to participate in their initiatives. By distributing IASP materials,

translating resources into your local language, hosting an event, or contributing to webinars or resources, you will support the powerful impact of the 2021 Global Year About Back Pain campaign.
Sharing advancements and knowledge in back pain prevention and treatment is critical to improving pain relief. I look forward to seeing how the 2021 Global Year About Back Pain manifests in IASP’s 48th year of working towards global pain relief.
