Minister's Statement on Orkambi and Kalydeco

Cystic Fibrosis Ireland welcomes the statement last night, by Minister for Health Simon Harris TD that progress is being made in relation to the approval of ground breaking CF drugs Orkambi and Kalydeco. CEO of CFI Philip Watt stated 'while this is a positive statement of intent there will remain high anxiety among the CF community in Ireland until these drug therapies are finally approved by the HSE and the Minister.'

CFI is supporting a dignified protest to highlight the urgency of approving these drug therapies outside the Dail on Wednesday 1 March at 1.15pm.
