Survey on the indirect costs of IBD
The aim of the study was to assess the influence of IBD on the patients productivity at work and relevant costs for society.
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.
The European Federation of Crohn's & Ulcerative Colitis Associations (EFCCA) and the European Crohn’s and Colitis Organisation (ECCO) have initiated the public awareness campaign “Join the fight against IBD”. Its aim is to enhance the general understanding of the physical and socio-economic burdens of the disease and to accelerate the dissemination of new standards of care of inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) among health institutions, healthcare providers.
The global impact of COVID-19 has been overwhelming and without pause, accelerating at lightning speed, changing our lives and our way of seeing the world. In recent months, unfortunately, the philosophy of our organization, which is to create spaces for meeting, for dialogue between the various associations and all the interlocutors. has also had to change.
