The CFIDS Association of America, Inc., is a 501(c)3 charitable organization dedicated to conquering CFIDS, also known as chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) and myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME). The association provides information to the public and health professionals, encourages research, and promotes early diagnosis and appropriate treatment for those affected by CFIDS. The syndrome is characterized by profound fatigue that does not respond to bed rest and by other symptoms. Its onset is usually sudden, sometimes following a flu-like illness. CFIDS was established in 1987 and has 23,000 members. Educational materials now include The CFIDS Chronicle and The CFS Research Review which helps educate the health care community about the illness.
