Excerpt
The meeting reported here was convened in order to address these problems, and to define strategies for the implementation and development of cystic fibrosis services in developing countries. In this context, the term developing country is used in a medical, not a socioeconomic sense. It refers to those countries where CF is known to exist, and thought to be much more common than is appreciated by either the medical profession or the general public, and where cystic fibrosis services are either non-existent or in the early stages of development. Similarly, the developed countries in a CF sense are those in which cystic fibrosis is usually rapidly diagnosed and appropriately treated.
