A month has passed since the CDC's revised solicitation deadline and we still haven't heard the final outcome of the CDC contract solicitation. We want to update you that less than 48 hours before the CDC deadline we decided to submit our own bid for this contract in partnership with the New York State Department of Health AIDS Institute.
#MEAction did not plan to take something like this on, but we could not let this contract be given to a center that has contributed to hardship for the ME community in the past. We support patients first, and we are willing to take strategic steps towards improving clinician care for our community. Nothing about this process has been perfect, but we are confident that our partnership with the NYSDOH AIDS Institute could provide a literature review of ME that is accurate and beneficial for the ME community.
