HHS/IOM Contract Facts: HHS has signed a contract with the IOM to re-define ME/CFS. HHS is spending approximately one million dollars to do so. HHS refuses to adopt the CCC in defiance of 50 experts, 171 advocates and countless patients. The contract is not what the CFSAC recommendation called for. HHS lied when they said they are canceling the action to contract with the IOM.....just to change their mind a week later. IOM will have non-experts on the panel. IOM has re-named GWI to CMI and considers CFS a psychogenic disease needing treatments of anti-depressants, CBT and GET. Government contracts can be broken and canceled. There was no full and open competition in attaining the HHS/IOM contract.
