Funding of research and treatment of ME/CFS has been historically low.

According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the budget in the United States for chronic fatigue syndrome and ME/CFS for previous years is as follows:[1]

Fiscal Year 2012 - $5 million
Fiscal Year 2013 - $5 million
Fiscal Year 2014 - $5 million
Fiscal Year 2015 - $6 million
Fiscal Year 2016 - $7 million

In November 2016, NIH Director Francis Collins announced that NIH spending for research for CFS disease is intended to double to roughly $15 million in 2017, compared to the estimated $7.6 million allotted for research in 2016.[2]
