About Cystic Fibrosis Australia
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. Everyone at CFA is committed to improving clinical practice and patient outcomes with the aim of extending life expectancy from 47 to 55 years by 2025. It is an imposing challenge. Every four days a baby is born in Australia with cystic fibrosis (CF) and more than one million Australians are carriers of CF genes. Cystic Fibrosis Australia (CFA) is working to transform lives and reduce the burden of the disease.
Cystic Fibrosis Australia believes that all people with CF should have the opportunity to lead full, productive and valuable lives with access to the best treatments and high quality clinical care.
