The mission of the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is to enhance and protect the health and well-being of all Americans. HHS Secretary, Sylvia Mathews Burwell, is "committed to the mission of ensuring that every American has access to the building blocks of healthy and productive lives."[1]

HHS has 11 operating divisions, including eight agencies in the United States Public Health Service and three human services agencies. Some of these include the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), the Food and Drug administration (FDA), and the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

It is, also, home of the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Advisory Committee (CFSAC) (pronounced "sif-sac") which falls under the administrative and management support of the HHS Office on Women's Health and is lead by Nancy C. Lee, M.D., Deputy Assistant Secretary for Health – Women’s Health.[2]

The Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Advisory Committee is chaired by Dr. Susan Levine.
