Our Commitment to Equity, Racial Justice, Diversity, and Inclusion

Our Commitment to Equity, Racial Justice, Diversity, and Inclusion

At the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, we commit to equity, racial justice, diversity, and inclusion as core principles guiding our efforts to provide all people with CF the opportunity to live long, fulfilling lives.

To advance our mission...

We commit to helping address the systemic barriers that have led to health disparities for many in the CF community, particularly Black, Hispanic, and other communities of color. We will work toward ensuring all individuals with CF have the opportunity for optimal health outcomes. ​

This commitment guides our work to engage and support the CF community, and to work in partnership with individuals in the CF community to best inform and enact these efforts. ​

This commitment guides us as Foundation staff work together to build an inclusive and respectful environment where everyone is welcomed, and where talented individuals from all backgrounds, identities, and lived experiences have opportunity to thrive. 

Our commitment to these principles makes us stronger as an organization, enables us to better serve all members of the CF community, and ultimately speeds the advancement of our work to find a cure for cystic fibrosis.

Health Equity in Cystic Fibrosis

It’s critically important to bring a health equity lens to everything we do in cystic fibrosis. By addressing disparities ranging from delayed diagnosis to decreased access to care, we can help ensure all people with CF have fair and just opportunities to achieve optimal health outcomes.
