Next Exciting Step Towards Increased Research Funding For ME/CFS From The NHMRC

Next exciting step towards increased Research Funding for ME/CFS from the NHMRC.

By Penelope Del Fante
Tuesday 28 November 2017

The National Health and Medical Research Council has announced its first ever ME/CFS Advisory Committee. This follows a year of negotiations, including our submission for a targeted call for research funding for ME/CFS.

For more information about the Committee and its role, including terms of reference, see:

https://www.nhmrc.gov.au/health-topics/myalgic-encephalomyelitis-and-chronic-fatigue-syndrome

People with ME/CFS are represented on this committee by Simone Eyssens (MEAction Network Australia) and Penelope McMillan (ME/CFS Australia (SA)), who are both major contributors to the work that has led to this point and so have a good understanding of what will be required to represent our community effectively on this committee.

This ME/CFS Advisory Committee is the outcome of more than a year of hard work, led by ME/CFS Australia (SA), with invaluable support from MEAction Network Australia and the cooperation of ME/CFS Australia Ltd, Emerge Australia, ME/CFS & Lyme Association of WA and ME/CFS & FM Association of NSW. We are also grateful for former Senator Scott Ludlam's role in presenting our concerns to Professor Anne Kelso, CEO of NHMRC, during Senate Estimate hearings.

The committee will sit for a year with its proceedings being mostly confidential.

We look forward to learning more in a year's time.
