Improving quality of life for people with IBDsmall

In order to mark World IBD Day 2016 the European Federation of Crohn´s and Ulcerative Colitis Associations (EFCCA) together with its 31 member associations and other IBD sister organisations from around the world are uniting their efforts around the campaign ¨Improving quality of life for people with IBD¨ in order to create greater awareness about inflammatory bowel disease and to pave the way for improvements in the quality of life of people with IBD.

As part of the campaign local and regional authorities worldwide will light up famous landmarks in purple (the colour for World IBD Day) in support of our campaign. Images of these highlighted landmarks/buildings will be shared on this website as well as other international and national social media channels using the hashtag #unitedwestand2016. Many associations around the world will engage in supporting event providing detailed information about IBD and issues addressing the quality of life of people with IBD.
