World ME Day - a World ME Alliance Initiative

The World ME Alliance, a collaborative of organisations from across the globe, is launching World ME Day on 12th May 2022. This new initiative aims to bring together organisations and unify efforts to raise awareness and campaign together on Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME). Through collective action, we will step closer to our goal of a world without ME.

World ME Day will build on the incredible efforts of advocates around events, such as ME Awareness Week and Chronic Immunological and Neurological Diseases (CIND) Awareness Day. By focusing on a single day and collaborating across many organisations, we aim to maximise our collective power.

The theme for the first year of World ME Day is #LearnFromME.

More actions, information and resources will be released in the run up to World ME Day on May 12th, and the World ME Alliance hopes you will consider participating in this exciting initiative!
