The ME/CFS Society of Western Australia has recently launched its new website which we hope adds usefully to both available information and debate regarding ME/CFS. Visitors will note our unequivocal support for the diagnostic definition and treatment philosophy contained in the Canadian Guidelines 2003 and the early demise of the term CFS and its related vague diagnostic criteria and inappropriate treatments.

Emerge Australia Inc advocates for, educates about, and provides information on, Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME) more commonly known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). Established in 1980, Emerge Australia has been working with people affected by ME/CFS for over 34 years.

We believe that until a cure is found, people affected by ME/CFS can lead better lives by being understood and supported by the medical and general communities. Our role is to make sure that anyone affected by ME/CFS has the access they need to the support, education and advocacy that empowers them to make their lives more liveable.

ME/CFS affects men, women and children of all ages, cultures and socioeconomic backgrounds. Between 94,000 and 242,000 Australians are estimated to be affected by ME/CFS at any one time. People with severe ME, are bedbound and may be in constant pain. There are varying degrees of severity, but around 25% of people are so profoundly affected by the condition they don’t recover. Symptoms are not limited to severe fatigue – they include a range of sleep, digestion, sensitivity, balance, brain dysfunction and pain issues.

The combination of these issues contributes to the deterioration of the quality of life for people with ME/CFS.

With members and supporters Australia-wide, Emerge Australia works to improve the quality of life for anyone affected by this debilitating condition.
