ME International lists all ME and ME/CFS organizations regardless of any diagnostic criteria that they might promote because people may want to learn about ME or CFS organizations around the world. ME International, however, wants to clarify that ME International specifically supports the ICC diagnostic criteria. ME International feels the fastest way for ME patients to get proper care is by adopting the ICC. See button below for other criteria organizations.
