Our Strategy for Success
MECFA identified that a Strategic Plan detailing our strategy was vital to provide the organization with direction for decision making over the next 3 years, plus a blueprint for action by the management team.
The need for a Plan lies in recognition of both the internal environment of the organization with its increased project-based mission, its aim for financial security and the external environment where decision makers, funding agencies and donors require ever increasing accountability.
The Middle East Cystic Fibrosis Association focuses on;
Increasing life expectancy and quality of life for CF patients regionally through improved access to CF Care Centers, Standards of Care and access to necessary drugs and equipment.
Supporting research and clinical trials in the region;
Increasing awareness about CF and Rare Disease in the region.
