New IMPACT publication
On the occasion of World IBD Day, we are making available our latest publication of the IMPACT survey.
The survey was a joint project of EFCCA and its national member associations. It was launched in November 2010 and closed in August 2011. IMPACT II is now on-going in several other countries in and outside Europe.
Joining forces to fight IBD in the Middle East
On 28-29 November a group of people living with IBD and IBD healthcare specialists from 6 countries in the Middle East including Oman, Saudi Arabia, Dubai, Qatar and Kuwait met for the first time in Dubai to exchange ideas and experiences on how to improve the quality of life of people with IBD in the Middle East.
As part of the World IBD Day celebrations EFCC organised participation at the Brussels 20 km marathon in order to raise awareness about Crohn´s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis, collectively known as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), which affect over 3 million people in Europe.
The 20 km marathon took place on 31 May at 10 am in Brussels, Belgium. Starting point was at the Parc du Cinquantenaire.
This year more than 40 countries across the globe joined together in a unified effort to raise awareness about Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis in honor of World IBD Day, held every year on May 19. This year’s efforts centered around a global video campaign encouraging anyone impacted by IBD to share their story in a short video with the unifying theme of “United We Stand.” Worldwide, five million people live with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.
