Migraine is the most common disabling headache disorder for the neurological services in the Western Pacific region. The first multi-national study on migraine concluded that the prevalence of migraine was comparable with other counties in the word. Migraine remains under-diagnosed and under-treated even though a high disability was found in patients with migraine. However, recent effort by several countries in this region has improved headache care.
