Charities and funders agree charter to keep CFS researchers in the field

Charities, medics and researchers have signed up to a partnership for chronic fatigue syndrome research, which includes an agreement not to harass or abuse researchers working in the field.

The partnership between the Medical Research Council and charities such as Action for Myalgic Encephalomyelopathy and the ME Association among others, was launched in London on 22 April.
