THE FOUNDATION

Once believed to be almost eliminated as a public health risk, infectious diseases remain a leading cause of death worldwide. Despite incredible advances in medicine, our good health is still at risk.

The Canadian Foundation for Infectious Diseases (CFID) is a charitable organization established in 1989 and committed to improving the health of Canadians and people worldwide through the support of research and dissemination of knowledge pertaining to infectious diseases.

Working in partnership with the Association of Medical Microbiology and Infectious Disease Canada (AMMI Canada), the Community and Hospital Infection Control Association of Canada (CHICA Canada), and other strategic partners and supporters, CFID will hasten the discovery of innovative solutions to better understand, prevent, control and treat the hundreds of existing and emerging infectious diseases that threaten our good health. CFID pledges to use every dollar raised responsibly and productively to aid the identification, prevention, control and treatment of infectious diseases.
