Action for M.E. 2016-2021 strategy

Over the next five years, our purpose is to end the ignorance, injustice and neglect experienced by people with M.E. We will do this by meeting need now while taking action to secure change for the future. Starting in 2016, everything we do over the next five years will be in service of achieving three goals, which we call our strategic touchstones, to tackle these challenges.

What is M.E.? / Living with M.E. / Health & care professionals / Employers & teachers / Research / Make a difference
