The CFIDS Association of America is the largest and most active 501(c)(3) charitable organization dedicated to conquering chronic fatigue and immune dysfunction syndrome (CFIDS, also widely known as chronic fatigue syndrome or CFS). Since its founding in 1987, the Association has invested over $16.4 million in support efforts to bring an end to the pain, disability and suffering caused by CFIDS.

The CFIDS Association is currently is promoting the national education campaign called Spark - "The first national public awareness campaign on chronic fatigue syndrome was launched June 7, 2006. This multifaceted $4 million campaign is designed to educate both the general public and health care professionals about CFS. The campaign will extend through 2007.

Primary funding for the campaign has been provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The funding came from the health marketing arm of the CDC, leaving their CFS research budget intact. The CFIDS Association of America was selected as the contractor to implement the campaign.

The campaign delivers vital information about who is at risk for CFS, the symptoms of the illness, treatment and management options, the importance of seeking diagnosis and treatment, and the impact of CFS illness on both patients and family members.

This campaign will ignite interest in CFS and spark increased understanding about the illness among the general public, health care professionals, legislators and the media. The campaign also has the potential to increase research funding for CFS from federal, biotech and pharmaceutical sources over the next decade.
