2019 was a huge year for advocacy at Emerge Australia. We can’t thank the ME/CFS community enough for getting behind so many campaigns and ensuring that your collective voice was heard.

Your actions enabled us to secure meetings with politicians across the political spectrum and have led to increased awareness of the challenges faced by people impacted by ME/CFS in Parliament.

2020 is shaping up to be even bigger.

Emerge Australia will continue to advocate for the inclusion of people with ME/CFS in telehealth services and increased access to the NDIS. We will deepen our relationships with the medical community to improve understanding of how to support patients living with ME/CFS. And we are working to increase support of grassroots advocacy at the State and Territory level.
