European Headache Federation

Since its foundation in 1992, EHF (European Headache Federation), a non-profit organisation, has sought to improve the life of those affected by headache in Europe.

To do so, EHF dedicates its efforts to improving awareness of headache disorders and their impact amongst governments, health care providers and consumers across Europe.

To educate Europe about headache is one of the main objectives of the EHF. Teaching of key players such as young doctors, neurologists, general practitioners and all those involved in headache management about the seriousness of headache disorders is focused.

Within its federal structure, EHF supports national headache societies with a specific focus on Eastern European countries.

The European Headache Federation (EHF) was founded in 1981 and was registered as a charity in England and Wales from 1995-2023. On September 7, 2023, the EHF was registered as "Verein" (i.e. Association) in Vienna, Austria.
