The CFIDS Association of America was founded in 1987 and has established itself as the leading charitable organization dedicated to chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS). It works towards its mission to make CFS widely understood, diagnosable, curable and preventable by stimulating research aimed at the early detection, objective diagnosis and effective treatment of CFS through expanded public, private and commercial investment.
For CFS to be widely understood, diagnosable, curable and preventable.

Our Core Values:
To lead with integrity, innovation and purpose.
The Association focuses its resources on advancing research, public policy and communications about CFS. The SolveCFS Campaign was launched in 2009 to advance these efforts. In March 2010, we announced the SolveCFS BioBank, a repository for blood and tissue samples and clinical information to advance biomarker discovery.
