CFS Public Health Research Program Draft 5-year Strategic Plan
Friday 5 June 2009
From the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in the US:
This document presents the CDC's CFS Public Health Research Program 5-year strategic plan, which takes into account the November 2008 Peer Review Panel's recommendations, comments during and following the April 2009 Stakeholders' Meeting, and discussions with collaborators. In brief, the CFS Public Health Research Program's primary aim is to reduce morbidity associated with CFS. Program strategy over the next 5-years will follow an interactive biosystems public health model with increasing emphasis on design, implementation, and evaluation of interventions to reduce morbidity associated with CFS. This document briefly:
1. Discusses current research program strategy, the interactive biosystems model upon which strategy is based, and current tactical components of the research program.
2. Outlines program's 4 major goals and the logic model that serves as their framework.
3. Presents projected activities (milestones) associated with the program's 4 goals.

There's been an angry response to the Plan by the CFIDS Association of America's Kim McCleary. You can read about it on Cort Johnson's Bringing the Heat blog: Kim McCleary On the CDCís Five Year Plan.
