Europe (EFCCA)

World IBD Day 2019

EFCCA will coordinate  the global campaign aimed at raising IBD awareness by highlighting famous landmarks in the colour of purple.

The theme for this year is "Making the invisible visible" which is about showing different aspects about IBD that are not visible to the public.

Within this theme EFCCA supports the European survey on the Indirect costs of IBD as we want to make visible the impact IBD has on the patients┬┤ productivity at work and other relevant costs for society. We plan to present these findings at a European policy event towards the second half of this year.

We are also collaborating with the European Society for Paediatric Gastroenterology Hepatology and Nutrition (ESPGHAN) to raise awareness of IBD especially its impact on children.
