We are the Fibromyalgia Awareness Association, based in Vitoria-Gasteiz in northern Spain. We differ from other patient organisations in many ways. We are very, very small. The smallest of all, in fact. So small that the members of our scientific committee outnumber us, and the people we collaborate with outnumber us and our scientific committee put together. All three of these groups, and our honorary patron, Basque television presenter Anne Igartiburu, receive the same financial compensation for our work: nada.
Our mission remains the same as when we were founded: to focus solely on raising awareness of this illness. Our modus operandi is almost always the same: we start with an idea, assess it with relevant experts, and build and develop the idea until it is ready to be given away freely to anyone browsing our websites.
