About Us

THE ORGANIZATION:

First launched in 2015, the Myalgic Encephalomyelitis Action Network (#MEAction) is a non-profit organization dedicated to changing this situation. We connect an international network of patients who are empowering each other to fight for health equality for Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME). #MEAction is not structured like a traditional advocacy organization. We are a digital platform designed to empower patients, advocates and organizations, wherever they might be, with the technological tools and training to do what they are already doing – better. We were founded with the belief that while we may find it difficult to advocate for ourselves in the physical world, in the virtual world, we can be an unstoppable force.
