New website coming soon

In May we were successful in our grant application to The Lion Foundation to re-develop our website. There's a lot of information on our website, and information that’s particularly relevant for people in Aotearoa, unlike other health or international websites on migraine.
But we’d like to make our website more user friendly and easier to find information, and we have a lot more content we’d like to include, such as new sections on types of migraine, managing migraine, including non-medication approaches and complementary therapies, information for children and adolescents with migraine and more.

It’s very fitting that our first grant money will be spent on something that will benefit everyone in Aotearoa New Zealand with migraine who can use the internet. Our goal is to be the go-to information hub for people with migraine in NZ and for health professionals treating people with migraine.

We’re committed to providing free, comprehensive, evidence-based, up-to-date and NZ-specific information because we want to empower all people with migraine to understand and manage this complex disease. There’s a lot of misinformation and misunderstanding about migraine in the community, in workplaces and even in the health system. Robust and trustworthy information is critical to combat stereotypes, stigma and lack of awareness.
We want people with migraine (and their friends and families) to be able to self-advocate to get the best possible health care, working conditions and support.

Over the past few months we’ve been working with Digital Stream to make our new website come alive. We’ve been busy writing lots of new content, expanding our existing content and working on new features to make the website easier to navigate. It’s been a huge piece of work and we’re excited to be launching in the next couple of months.

And a big thank you to The Lion Foundation for making the project possible. Accurate, relevant information is crucial for people with migraine in Aotearoa New Zealand and your support goes a long way to help the 642,000 people in New Zealand with migraine.
