Update from Solve ME:
WHY WE SUPPORT THE COVID-19 AND PANDEMIC RESPONSE CENTERS OF EXCELLENCE ACT AND THE COVID-19 LONG HAULERS ACT
OCTOBER 20, 2021
You’ve probably already heard about The COVID-19 Long Haulers Act (H.R. 2754), which was formally introduced before Congress after being announced during Advocacy Week 2021 at a bipartisan press conference hosted by Solve M.E. and the Long COVID Alliance. The Longhaulers Act would authorize $93 million for research and treatment, and address disparities of debilitating diseases affecting millions of Americans.
But what fuels my passion for this bill, is the specific language related to ME/CFS in the medical and public education programs. How long have we fought for these programs? Education and awareness are more important now than ever before because so many COVID-triggered cases of ME/CFS are flooding into trauma centers and doctors’ offices.
We must prevent history from repeating itself for another generation of ME/CFS sufferers.
Take action now and lend your support to H.R. 2754.
