The Cystic Fibrosis Worldwide works to promote access to appropriate care and education for those people living with the disease in developing countries and to improve the knowledge of cystic fibrosis among medical professionals and governments worldwide. Cystic fibrosis is an inherited disorder that affects several "outwardly secreting" glands, including respiratory, pancreatic, salivary, and sweat glands. CFW supports the search for a cure and promotes international linkage in the sharing of information. The current organization was created in January 2003 after the merger of International Cystic Fibrosis Adults (IACFA) and International Cystic Fibrosis (Mucoviscidosis) Association (ICFMA). Its philosophy is that people whose lives are affected by cystic fibrosis must have equal opportunities to participate in their society no matter where they live.
