Since our inception in 1991, IFFGD has helped millions of people, providing information, assistance, and support.
We publish a magazine, Digestive Health Matters, that covers different areas of gastrointestinal health in adults and children with up-to-date information on recognizing, diagnosing, treating, and living with the disorders.
The information is reliable and understandable by lay readers, while being authoritative for medical professionals. Distribution has been to members, physicians, regulators, investigators, and the general public in countries throughout the world.
We maintain a unique library of our own publications and fact sheets that contains over two hundred articles with information on a range of topics available to help individuals or the families of those affected by GI disorders.
We have been active in Washington, DC making the needs of all those affected by functional GI and motility disorders known to members of congress and to funders an regulators at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Learn about those activities, and how you can participate here.
