Our November 2022
Emerge Australia strongly advocates for the Federal Department of Health to make post-infection disease Australias 10th National Health Priority Area (NHPA). The number of Australians living with post-infection disease is rapidly increasing due to a new cohort of post-infection disease patients: those with Long COVID.
Help more ME/CFS patients connect to Emerge Australia this Christmas.
Delayed by misdiagnosis, people with ME/CFS and Long COVID are waiting too long for the vital support they need. Donate to Emerge Australia by through Christmas, so no one with ME/CFS or Long COVID misses out on help this Christmas.
ME/CFS is a permanent condition for most people. Less than 10% recover to pre-illness functioning and 20% of patients may worsen with time. Despite this, many people with ME/CFS experience significant difficulties accessing the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).
A national, Optimal Care Referral Pathway (OCRP) will provide all people with ME/CFS consistent care across Australia, using an evidence-based, best practice pathway that empowers patients and clinicians to navigate support of complex, multi-system conditions such as ME/CFS, and other post infection diseases, such as Long COVID.
