Missions and actions

4 missions to assist patients and find a cure

Vaincre la Mucoviscidose provides support for patients and their families in every aspect of their lives turned upside down by cystic fibrosis. The association is organised around 4 priority missions: to heal, provide care, improve the quality of life and increase awareness.

Finding a cure for tomorrow by supporting and financing research

Subsidies for basic and clinical research projects, development of clinical trials, distribution of scientific information (symposia, publications). This mission is the primary aim of the association, which is developing a diversified and ambitious research strategy in permanent conjunction with international research. For further information

Providing treatment today by improving the quality of care

Training of healthcare providers, epidemiological monitoring, and support for lung transplantation: the association is involved in all areas to ensure the optimisation of prevention and care. In addition, we finance specialised posts and projects in hospitals and in transplant centres. For further information

Coping with cystic fibrosis by improving patients' quality of life

We offer individual support for patients and their close relations in all areas of daily life (schooling, work, social rights, etc.), financial aid and collective actions with public authorities so that their social rights are better taken into account. For further information

Increasing the awareness of the general public and informing parents and patients

Cystic fibrosis is a complex genetic disease. It requires significant and regular information for both the families affected and professionals. Raising the awareness of as many people as possible generates indispensable support for the association’s missions.
