    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    ME Action is a member driven non-profit organization and international network of patients fighting for health equality for ME. They are looking to hire an on-the-ground, UK co-ordinator for advocacy, campaigns and medical outreach.

    ME (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis) is a devastating neuro-immune disease affecting 250,000 people in the UK (21,000 in Scotland) of whom 25% are housebound or bedbound.

    Worldwide, it affects 20 million people of all ages, ethnicities and socio-economic groups. ME is the most common cause of long term school absence in UK and affects more women than men. There is currently no effective treatment or cure for ME due to decades of underfunding for biomedical research. The main reason there is no treatment or cure is the lack of money spent on biomedical research for the last 30 years. ME receives 20 times less funding than MS despite being twice as prevalent.
