ME/CFS GetUp! Campaign: It is time to get serious research into the cause of this debilitating condition
by FNC ME/CFS Association Inc:
There are currently about 300,000 to 500,000 people in Australia affected by ME/CFS. There is very little to no research into the condition. There needs to be research into it's cause and treatment (non-psychological). Advocacy and other assistance also needs to be addressed. With about 20 cents per year per person in funding of research and $ 10billion lost in productivity it is time to get serious about this debilitating condition.
