Show me the Money -- $3.1B versus 6M

How do you feel about how your tax money was spent last year?

NIH-Sponsored HIV/AIDS funding (2011) = $3,086,000,000
NIH-Sponsored CFS Research (2011) = $6,000,000

Perfectly healthly HIV+ people received $3.1B in research funding last year.

Sick, ailing, immunodeficient CFS/ME patients received $6M.

How couldn't you be infuriated?

In terms of the immune dysfunction and human suffering, just from what we know today, CFS is just as serious a public health problem as AIDS.

Please write your government representatives demanding funding parity for CFS with AIDS. U.S. representatives here:
