The beauty of this campaign’s impact is that the Senate worked in language to FY 2011 budget to advance research on diseases that cause women chronic pain, including endometriosis.

The Campaign to End Chronic Pain in Women Applauds Senate Committee Action to Help Millions of Women
Appropriations Plan Calls on Key Federal Health Agencies to Improve Research and Education on Neglected Women’s Chronic Pain Conditions

WASHINGTON D.C. (August 3, 2010) – The Campaign to End Chronic Pain in Women applauds the Senate Appropriations Committee for including language in its Fiscal Year 2011 Labor, Health and Human Services, Education Appropriations Bill that directs federal agencies to advance research and promote awareness of neglected chronic pain conditions that predominantly affect women. This action was taken in response to a groundbreaking report released by the Campaign in May, documenting that the National Institutes of Health invested only $1.33 in research for every woman affected by vulvodynia, temporomandibular disorders (TMJ), endometriosis, fibromyalgia, interstitial cystitis, and chronic fatigue syndrome.
