Migraine in Aotearoa New Zealand Survey 2022
In 2022, we undertook the first online survey of people with migraine in Aotearoa New Zealand. We received 579 responses. Following removal of incomplete responses and those unlikely to have migraine, we had 530 responses for analysis.
The aim of the survey was to collect data on chronic migraine, medication overuse, types of medications used, non-medication treatments used, impact of migraine on work, access to and experience of health services, stigma and more.
Analysed by our researcher and epidemiologist, our key insight reports summarise the findings and offer much-needed research and insight into the lived experience of people with migraine in Aotearoa New Zealand

Living with migraine disease can be challenging. Those of us with migraine know that it’s more than just a headache. Migraine is a whole body disease that affects everyone differently.
It can feel isolating, yet in New Zealand there are hundreds of thousands of people living with migraine.
Members of the Migraine Foundation Aotearoa New Zealand community share their stories about living with migraine and how there’s hope, even when some days it can feel like a struggle.
