Lives unaffected by cystic fibrosis

Advocacy

CFA works tirelessly to raise the profile of cystic fibrosis nationally and takes key messages to government, business and the health and community sectors.

These groups understand and appreciate the tribulations confronting people with CF. Challenges facing people with cystic fibrosis include drug affordability and availability, appropriate mental health services, infection control, gene testing and access to the best medical and allied health services.

CFA also supports state and territory cystic fibrosis bodies that provide valuable services to the CF community.
