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 and encourage research, and
- improve digestive health in adults and children.
