Looking for Solutions

Like matchsticks people with ME have often been discarded, no longer worthy of attention.

ME has been a frequently misunderstood disease.

  • Underfunded and ignored
  • Poorly researched and lacking any coherent research strategy
  • A cause of hardship and distress for patients and families and difficulties for healthcare staff
  • Misrepresented by ill-informed media
  • Incorrectly described in medical text books
  • Lacking factual information for GPs
  • Subject to flawed or deleterious treatments

There is a better way.

Invest in ME (Research) attempts to change this by raising the standards - via up-to-date educational material and annual international conferences/colloquiums and a research strategy backed up by international researchers.

Our aim – to resolve this
