Welcome to the European ME Alliance
Who we are
The European ME Alliance is a grouping of European organisations who are
involved in supporting patients suffering from myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME or
ME/CFS) and are campaigning for funding for biomedical research to provide
treatments and cures for ME.
The alliance was formed in 2008 by national
charities and organisations in Europe.
The Alliance now has representatives from
Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Holland, Ireland, Italy, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK.
ME/CFS is a debilitating neurological illness classified as such by
the World Health Organisation under ICD-10 G93.3.
Our aim is to bring together
a European lobby of groups to campaign for funding of biomedical research to
establish an understanding of the aetiology, pathogenesis and epidemiology of ME/CFS. This should lead to the development of treatments to cure or alleviate the effects of the illness.
aim is to allow this web site to be viewed in any of the major European
languages. When activated it should be
possible to switch to your language of choice. The web site will be undergoing
further development over the next months.
