Traditionally our national day, mainly based on communication and fundraising, takes place the first weekend of October. This year, AFA decided to join the World lbd day, with the goal of raising the general public’s awareness of the burden of the disease but also on lobbying to carry patient’s voices to Healthcare decision makers.
In France, ulcerative colitis is considered as the "small" IBD, so, the afa is launching a new communication campaign which will be unveiled at a press conference on May 16th.\r\n
On behalf of all the patients and their relatives, AFA is submitting a letter of inquiry on the urgency of the situation in IBD to Marisol Touraine, Minister of Social Affairs and Health.\r\n
