ME/CFS patients deserve Equal Funding at the National Institutes of Health!

Now is the time to act. Two scientific reports in two months by experts outside of the ME or CFS field say the same thing: “…more research is urgently needed.” A window of opportunity has opened. Now we must work together to push NIH to increase funding for research.

Join us by emailing the Secretary of Health and Director of NIH for equal funding for ME/CFS research!
The power of the P2P and IOM reports is in their remarkably similar conclusions that the need for evidence based research is urgent and that ME/CFS is a complex, serious physiological disease.

Innovative biomedical research is urgently needed to identify risk and therapeutic targets, and for translation efforts.” NIH Pathways to Prevention Report

The P2P and IOM recommendations are powerful because they come from prestigious institutions and independent scientists. This gives us powerful ammunition to advocate for Equal Funding!

We can make this opportunity bigger by making our voices heard. Help us reach 1,000 emails for Equal Funding – we’re almost halfway there!
