The European ME Alliance gives a voice for people with ME in Europe and is the European partner for facilitating high-quality biomedical research into Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME).


Who We Are

European ME Alliance

The European ME Alliance is a grouping of European organisations who are involved in supporting patients suffering from myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME or ME/CFS) and are campaigning for funding for biomedical research to provide treatments and cures for ME.

The alliance was formed in 2008 by national charities and organisations in Europe.

The Alliance now has representatives from Belgium, Croatia, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Lithuania, Netherlands, Norway, Serbia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and UK.

ME/CFS is a debilitating neurological illness classified as such by the World Health Organisation under ICD-10 G93.3.

Our aim is to campaign for appropriate funding of biomedical research into ME/CFS to establish an understanding of the aetiology, pathogenesis and epidemiology of the disease. This should lead to the development of treatments to cure or alleviate the effects of the illness.
