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.
Amazing news! #MEAction and Mayo Clinic applied for a grant together from the Society to Improve Diagnosis in Medicine to transform the diagnostic and treatment process at Mayo Clinic Rochester for people with ME/CFS!
