The International Headache Society (IHS) is a London-based charity membership organisation founded in 1981 for those with a professional commitment to helping people affected by headache.

It has over 1,000 ordinary members (including national society members). The society publishes an international journal Cephalalgia. The society was incorporated in 1994 in England and Wales as a Company Limited by Guarantee and registered in 1995 as a charity. Lars Edvinsson, a professor at Lund University and a leading expert in the field of cerebral circulation and migraine, is the past president of the International Headache Society.[1] Current president is Messoud Ashina.

International Headache Congress[edit]

The International Headache Congress (IHC) is held every second year, organized and hosted on behalf of IHS by a member national society.
