- We offer up-to-date information via a range of publications
and websites - for patients and professionals and help people
keep in touch with others with the illness.
- We also offer advice and support via our telephone helplines
and through support of affiliated groups.
In 1998 the Government's Chief Medical Officer, Sir Kenneth Calman,
made the following announcement: "I recognise that ME is
a real entity. It is distressing and debilitating. It affects a
large number of people and poses a significant challenge to the
medical profession." He established a Working Group, due
to report in 2001, which it is hoped will advise his successor on
the diagnosis and treatment of ME. Action for ME is represented
on the Group. Too little is known about ME and AfME is keen
both to promote research and disseminate research findings to lay
and professional audiences.
AfME receives no government funding and is largely supported
by donations, legacies and subscriptions.
