Invest in ME
Invest in ME is a charity in the United Kingdom that campaigns for biomedical research into myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME). The main goal of the organization is to change the way ME is perceived in media and health care. The charity favours the Canadian consensus criteria for diagnosis.
The charity has established an information centre and publishes a regular newsletter. It organizes international conferences on ME in London on a yearly basis, the first one held in 2006 on May 12, ME awareness day.
Invest in ME criticize the investment of the Medical Research Council into behavioural management techniques as graded exercise therapy and cognitive behavioural therapy, fearing a potential for adverse effects due to cardiovascular problems caused by the disease.
