Sex, Gender and Pain

The SIG on Sex, Gender, and Pain aims to:

  • Encourage basic and clinical research on how sex and gender affect pain mechanisms and all realms of its management.
  • Provide a central information resource on these issues.
  • Develop multidisciplinary discussion groups on subtopics of these issues.

The IASP SIG on Sex, Gender and Pain keeps an archive of published newsletters from 2000.
