Australia: What is the fuss? Make a video for the Medical Research Fund

Make a video and show the Australian Government Medical Research fund how ME affects you
Australia’s Health Minister, Susan Ley, today launched the Medical Research Future Fund (MRFF), which has been established to fund health and medical research.

The MRFF will grow to $20 billion by the year 2020, so let’s ask for our fair share for Myalgic encephalomyelitis and tell our stories. The government has set up the website whatsthefuss.org.au and is encouraging us to send in our videos.

In Australia, there are are around 94,000 people with Myalgic encephalomyelitis (according to Emerge Australia) and the government spends only around $130,000 a year on medical research. Minister Ley said only $2 million has been spent on research for ME and CFS in total in the last 16 years.

See the videos at whatsthefuss.org.au and make your own about Myalgic encephalomyelitis and how it affects you.
Let’s make a fuss!
