Dear Friends,

In these sensitive days, our guide could be science only, to protect the health all over the world. We focused on current headache science for everyone and worked together without any borders or barriers. Despite the troubles related to pandemics, we could meet with more than fifty countries and more than 1500 colleagues on the same scope in the previous MENA meetings. We aimed to discuss headache disorders and some parts of other pain disorders for practical approach, especially taking the poor resources and other realities of the MENA regions and eastern Asia, as well.

This year we plan to enrich our program with case-based discussions, model-based workshops and update sessions for ensuring current scientific approach and practical tips provided by important headache experts. Additionally, we want to widen our perspective with roundtable workshops about ongoing projects and new areas will be created altogether.

With qualified technical support, we want to share with you another hybrid congress experience. All of the discussion sessions will be as long as possible for taking your comments and answering your questions together with filtered insights of the valuable experts. As in the previous year, we are grateful to the International Headache Society for valuable support and endorsement of the meeting. We also appreciate all of our industrial sponsors and other kind supports to the meeting.

Finally, we hope that you will find a way to come in person to Antalya for inspiring Turkish hospitality, Turkish Cuisine, and the unique atmosphere of Antalya on the Mediterranean coast.

We are looking forward to seeing you…

On behalf of the organizing and Scientific Committee

Prof. Dr. Aynur Özge
President of the Congress
