The Australian Pain Management Association Inc. (APMA) is a health charity which was established in 2009 because there weren't any community services for the more than 3.2 million Australians living with pain. APMA is the consumer health organisation for all Australians who live with pain. APMA is your voice. We aim to enhance the wellbeing of all Australians living with chronic pain through guided pain management, involving your pain team. This is reflected in the goals of the National Pain Strategy which APMA actively supports. APMA is entirely self-funded and relies on memberships, donations and sponsorships to meet some of the enormous needs of people with severe chronic pain.
