The Polish Headache Society (PTBG) was established in 1988 and comes from the tradition of the Migraine Research Section of the Polish Neurological Society, which has existed since 1974. The society brings together doctors of various specialties and psychologists dealing with headaches. The aim of the Society's activities is to help people suffering from headaches by promoting, supporting and developing research in this field. To achieve these goals, under the patronage of the Society, conferences, symposia and scientific meetings are organized, as well as trainings for neurologists and family doctors - lecture cycles - the Migraine School and the Academy of Headache were conducted in several Polish cities. The Society also publishes the MIGRENA periodical, and has also prepared the Polish edition of the current classification of headaches. It is also represented internationally at the European Headache Foundation (EHF) and the International Headache Society (IHS).
