ACHE was created in 1990 through an initiative of the American Headache Society® (AHS), an organization of 1,500 physicians, health professionals and research scientists. AHS physicians and the American Headache Society Committee on Headache Education (ACHE) lay members collaborate in producing educational programs and materials, coordinating the support groups, and undertaking public awareness initiatives all aimed at improving care for headache sufferers.
ACHE is a nonprofit patient-health professional partnership dedicated to advancing the treatment and management of patients with headache. ACHE serves as an educational resource for health care providers who seek patient information materials, tools, and resources to help educate and support their patients and their families who are affected by disabling headache. These educational materials also may be useful to health policy makers, employers, opinion leaders, schools, and families of headache sufferers.
