Here's what The National ME/FM Action Network does (from their website http://www.mefmaction.com )
The NATIONAL ME/FM ACTION NETWORK became a Canadian charitable organization on June 18, 1993 dedicated to Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, also known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS) and Fibromyalgia (FM) through support, advocacy, education and research. Since its founding, the organization has been an ACTION Network. Some of our accomplishments are
  • Providing knowledge and empowerment to the people who need information and help
  • Establishing relationships with both the provincial and Canadian governments in Canada to better the lives of people ill with ME/CFS and FM
  • Developing contacts with medical and legal professionals
  • Working with National and International Support Groups
  • Publishing a quarterly newsletter keeping people informed about the progress in research and related matters
  • Spearheading the development of the Consensus Documents, known as the Canadian Definitions
  • Resource guides for disability matters
  • TEACH-ME guide for Teachers and Parents of children and youth with ME/CFS and FM

The NATIONAL ME/FM ACTION NETWORK hosted the 10th International IACFS/ME research and clinical conference for ME/CFS and FM and related illnesses in Ottawa from September 22nd to 25th, 2011 consisting of professional workshops and meetings as well as a one-day meeting for the general public.
