Montu has joined forces with Chronic Pain Australia (CPA) to promote Pain Awareness Month in a bid to raise A$100,000 for the cause.

Until the end of September, Montu and its patient platform Alternaleaf are donating $2 from every order to CPA, which will use the funds to advocate for Australians living with the condition. 

Montu vice president Rhys Staley said: “About two thirds of our patients use plant medicine to manage their chronic pain conditions.

“We are proud to be aligning with CPA this September and, on behalf of tens of thousands of our patients, further their advocacy during Pain Awareness Month.” 

CPA raises funds to advocate for the 3.6 million Australians living with chronic pain and promote triple AAA standards of care – awareness, accessibility and affordability. 

President Nicolette Ellis said: “The donation from Montu means that CPA can dedicate resources to amplifying the voice of those who live with chronic pain and make this invisible condition visible in the hearts and minds of the Australian community.

“Additional support will contribute funding for pain research, more patient advocacy at the highest levels of government and more support for those living with chronic pain,” she added.
