    The European ME Coalition (EMEC) presents three new fact sheets about ME/CFS. We hope these will help to inform politicians and key policymakers about the need for biomedical research on ME/CFS in Europe.

    The documents briefly summarize key facts about the economic and societal impact of ME/CFS in Europe and the recent efforts made by ME/CFS advocates including the petition submitted by Evelien Van Den Brink.

    There are three fact sheets: a long one with ample scientific references, a short one with key figures and pictograms, and a third one that focuses on recommendations to Member States made in the recently adopted European resolution on ME/CFS.

    The factsheets are available in the link below:

    Thanks to the S4ME members who provided feedback on earlier drafts of the large factsheet!

    It's a rounding error because of the scale but the true economic costs are €40B + whatever direct expenses are wasted on the psychosocial ideology, which is the sum of all the "researchers", resources, services and clinics applying the denial-based psychosocial ideology.

    It's a small detail but it should be noted that not only is this a massive economic loss, this loss are the result of planned direct expenses. In order words: people pay to waste enormous sums. Out of public funds. SMART.
