Cystic Fibrosis organisations in Australia provide support and services to people with Cystic Fibrosis (CF) and their carers and families. This is complemented by a commitment to research and a quality improvement program focussing on improved clinical care for people with CF.
Every four days a baby is born in Australia with cystic fibrosis (CF) and more than one million Australians are carriers of cystic fibrosis. Cystic Fibrosis Australia (CFA) is committed to improving clinical practice and patient outcomes through its quality improvement programmes and research with the aim of extending life expectancy from 37 to 50 years by 2025.
Cystic Fibrosis is a recessive genetic condition. It primarily affects the lungs and digestive system because of a malfunction in the exocrine system, responsible for producing saliva, sweat, tears and mucus.
In addition to working for a cure, Cystic Fibrosis Australia also provides support and advocacy to improve the lives of people with cystic fibrosis. Get involved by raising awareness about CF, participating in a fundraising event or volunteering.
Cystic Fibrosis Australia has established a consistent approach to advocacy across Australia and is now a subject matter expert for government, industry and the media.
The Australian Cystic Fibrosis Research Trust (ACFRT) is managed by Cystic Fibrosis Australia (CFA). Since 1989 it has funded more than 300 projects valued at over $6,000,000.

Join Cystic Fibrosis Community Care (CFCC) for a night of frivolous fun in support of Victorians living with cystic fibrosis.
A Night for CF is CFCC's premium fundraising event. Funds raised from the evening will allow the organisation to continue to provide vital support and services to Victoria's CF community.
Support for the CF community takes many forms including emergency financial assistance, supplementing the cost of expensive physiotherapy equipment and support for those receiving lifesaving lung transplants. CF affects the lungs, pancreas and reproductive systems. The average life expectancy is only 38. There is no cure.
