A team of ME/CFS advocates have launched a petition to raise awareness about the dire situation in Germany. Help Germany get to 50,000 signatures by Tuesday, Nov. 9th and they will be granted a public hearing in the German Bundestag to finally draw attention to the issue of ME/CFS .
Anyone across the world can sign! Please take a minute to sign and make this happen.
In Germany, there is virtually no medical care for ME/CFS patients, and there is no government funding for biomedical scientific research.
The petition calls for the German Bundestag to:
- Commit itself to the provision of healthcare appropriate to the disease severity of ME/CFS, in particular by amending § 116b SGB V as well as through awareness campaigns.
- Asks the House to give hope to ME/CFS sufferers by investing extensively in biomedical research on their disease.
- Asks Parliament to stand by those affected on a permanent basis, for example by appointing a designated representative or by creating an inter-factional working group.
