-brief description-

Demographics[edit]

A study in 2006 by Njoku, Jason, and Torres-Harding found a 0.68% CFS adult prevalence rate in Nigeria.[1] The higher prevalence has been potentially attributed to the presence of numerous fatiguing illnesses such as malaria and typhoid in Africa as well as the presence of malnutrition, poverty, and inadequate healthcare resources. These factors all increase the risk of individuals developing chronic fatigue or chronic fatigue syndrome.[2]
