An Open Letter to the Federal Health Minister
In a tremendous show of support for the cystic fibrosis community, an open letter to federal Health Minister, Patty Hadju, has been signed by 44 Members of Parliament from all political parties.
As part of our advocacy work to ensure fast and fair access to Trikafta, Cystic Fibrosis Canada, along with CF Get Loud and Cystic Fibrosis Treatment Society, formed an all party federal caucus in late 2020. The goal was to meet to highlight the urgent need for Trikafta in Canada and to find ways to expedite emergency access to Trikafta. The all party caucus recently composed an open letter to federal Health Minister, Patty Hadju, asking for her support to:
- Work with Health Canada to ensure Trikafta is approved for the broadest indication possible
- Work with the provinces to speed up the negotiations with the manufacturer through the our public drug programs through the pan-Canadian Pharmaceutical Alliance (pCPA)
