The Australian Parliament is asking for public submissions into chronic disease prevention and management in primary health care.  This is our opportunity to write to them and ask them to fund research into M.E. and cater for severely ill patients who require home care, visits and support from medical professionals.
Australia’s National Health and Medical Research Council has spent $2.1 million on research since 2000 (according to figures in a to me letter from Health Minister, Susan Ley 2015), which is around $130k a year. This is not enough!
94,000 people in Australia suffer and $4 billion in lost earnings warrants more action! The deadline for submissions is Friday, 31 July 2015.
Please make a submission if you can.

  1. Thank you for all who helped us with our submission to this Australian Inquiry – we were able to put in a submission on solutions for ME/CFS.
    We are working towards a treatment clinic where Australians can receive patient centred care and research from the 3 South Australian Universities can be centrally coordinated. Thanks again Cathie

  2. I have only just discovered this page so I missed the deadline for the submission. Thank you to all the people that did manage to write one.
    People who are living with the chronic illness CFS are falling through the cracks. We are not being able to access the necessary help that we need

  3. Hello humph,
    I’d encourage you to contact Minister Ley directly and ask for the funding figures (www.aph.gov.au/Senators_and_Members/Parliamentarian?MPID=00AMN)
    Minister Ley’s letter to me contains personal information so I won’t post it here, I’m sure you understand.
    Thanks for your interest,
    Sasha
