This is the largest Federal funding grant that has been committed to a support organisation working in the ME/CFS space.
CEO of Emerge Australia, Dr Heidi Nicholl, welcomed the funding, saying it was a significant recognition of the serious impact of the condition, and the work needed to combat ME/CFS.
“We are delighted the Federal Department of Health is supporting our work with a funding commitment towards specific programs. The funding will help Emerge Australia make a difference in the lives of many ME/CFS sufferers,” said Dr Nicholl.
The Federal funding will be directed towards the following specific programs:
• $80,000 on the support of an Information Line for sufferers

• $60,000 on a detailed Australian ME/CFS “health and wellbeing” survey
