Who at CDC is responsible for making the decision to keep the Toolkit?
"For most CDC websites, content decisions are reached through a collective understanding among various CDC professionals with expertise in scientific subject matter and the presentation of complex public health information. CDC also consults with clinicians and other interested individuals about the ongoing need for information about CFS and has been advised that the Toolkit helps meet this need. CDC will continue to work with others to review the Toolkit and update and expand this information as appropriate."
Why isn’t CDC listening to the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Advisory Committee?
"CDC does listen to the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Advisory Committee places great value in recommendations made by the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Advisory Committee. We consider all recommendations made by this committee. For example, the recent revision of the CFS website was initiated in response to CFSAC recommendations. CDC solicited specific comments from CFSAC members on the CFS web page and used these comments to make improvements to the site. We are taking the same approach with the Toolkit."
