Our aims

Our principal task is to unite the different individual objectives with the aim of making progress in every aspect of the life of people affected by Central Sensitization Syndromes (FM - CFS/ME - MCS - EHS).

As an association formed by affected people, we want the association to be, more and more, a convivial centre of mutual collaboration, where people affected by Central Sensitization Syndromes (FM - CFS/ME - MCS - EHS) can communicate between them and help each other, with the aim of learning to live with the illness and to be able to face the future with hope.

Therefore, the principal objectives of the ACAF are:

  • To inform and give support to people affected by Central Sensitization Syndromes (FM - CFS/ME - MCS - EHS).
  • To organize and carry out activities whose aim is to improve the quality of life of patients and their families.

Individual support, mutual aid and the improvement of the patients' quality of life are, therefore, the fundamental objectives of our association. However, they must be necessarily accompanied by other equally important objectives, which are the following:

  • To disseminate information on Central Sensitization Syndromes (FM - CFS/ME - MCS - EHS) and on our activities, so that citizens can acquire the required level of knowledge about this illnesses and about the needs of people affected by them and the role that each one can adopt, in the different contexts (relatives, friends, acquaintances, work colleagues, etc.), to help us in the achievement of our main objectives.

  • To provide information to administrations, politics representatives, health professionals, labour unions and employers, as well as to all other agents implied, about the needs and claims of people affected by Central Sensitization Syndromes (FM - CFS/ME - MCS - EHS) and their families.

  • To denounce any actions which do not recognize the illness as such and which can despise the difficult reality and suffering of people affected by Central Sensitization Syndromes (FM - CFS/ME - MCS - EHS) and their families.

  • To exchange information and to establish collaborations with all those groups and organizations (associations, foundations, etc.) working to achieve the same objectives or that can contribute to their achievement.
