Our Mission

Our mission is to inform, assist, and support people affected by gastrointestinal (GI) disorders.

IFFGD was founded in 1991 by one person struggling with the challenges imposed by a chronic GI disorder. Many others, from all walks of life, have joined with us.

We work with patients, families, physicians, nurses, practitioners, investigators, regulators, employers, and others to:

  • broaden understanding about GI disorders,
  • support or encourage research, and
  • improve digestive health in the adults and children.
