History and Purpose
When IFFGD began, in 1991, there was little communication between patients living with functional gastrointestinal (GI) disorders and the companies with the means to develop medical or pharmaceutical products and services. Subsequently, IFFGD has worked hard to make the needs of our members known—not only to the clinicians who see patients, but also to the researchers and providers of diagnostic and treatment methods and tools.
In 1998, in an effort to strengthen our voice, we formed the IFFGD Industry Council. This helps us facilitate communication between IFFGD and the Council participants and ensure that the voice of our membership is heard. The purpose of the Industry Council is to help fulfill the mission of IFFGD—to inform, assist, and support people affected by gastrointestinal disorders.
We invite participation from companies with a demonstrated interest in these disorders. While we are grateful to our Industry Council supporters, we do not endorse any specific product or company.
