Our mission is transparency in guideline development. The federal government has established a Tick-borne Disease Working Group (TBDWG) which reported to congress a recommendation for a website for guidelines to replace the Clearing House website. This website is an attempt to ensure compliance with that recommendation. A public response period to proposed guidelines is also mandated and is now underway. This website is an attempt to ensure that responses to the proposed guidelines are public, and to make clear to doctors, patients, and the public, places where it falls short of scientific standards.
