About the organisation

Organisation name : National Advisory Advocacy Council for ME/CFS Research

ME/CFS (Myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome) is an insidious disease that destroys lives and is estimated to cost the Australian community billions of dollars each year. Until recently, there has been no known cause, no reliable diagnosis and no approved clinical treatment pathways.  Australia is leading the world in clinical and scientific investigation and establishing the governance and advocacy frameworks to build strong mutual ties between patients and researchers.

  The National Advisory Advocacy Council for ME/CFS Research is a peak body founded in Queensland in 2019. We are changing our organisational structure to a charitable company limited by guarantee, and are seeking a suitably-qualified Treasurer to join our Board.
