Join #MillionsMissing in the UK!
#MillionsMissing is a global campaign for health equality for people with myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME), organised by#MEAction. We are protesting around the world for equitable funding for biomedical research, clinical trials, medical education and public awareness. We will take to the streets - and demonstrate from our beds - from May 5th to May 12th.
Myalgic encephalomyelitis is a debilitating, multi-system disease that affects approximately 250,000 men, women and children of all ethnicities, ages, and genders in the UK. ME leaves 75% of those affected unable to work and 25% homebound or bedridden.
In the UK, the #MillionsMissing campaign will focus on demanding increased funding for biomedical research into the diagnosis and treatment of ME.
Throughout the year, #MEAction supports and mobilises the community to advocate for people with ME, including helping to reach a historic Parliamentarydebate on ME this year, and fighting for accurate NICE guidelines for ME. Advocacy work takes time and resources. Your fundraiser is a way to help us get there.
Join the #MillionsMissing movement to demand justice for people with ME, and create your own fundraiser to power the work of #MEAction. Learn more at millionsmissing.org
