This year Egypt is taking part for the first time in celebrating the World IBD Day !! Along with organizations representing over 50 countries on five continents, coordinated by EFCCA. Many other IBD organizations and IBD activists and other stakeholders have joined the fight against IBD over the years.
EDGE is honored to be collaborating with EFFCA and representing Egypt in the fight against IBD.
What is IBD?
IBD, which stands for inflammatory bowel disease (including Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis) are two serious, chronic digestive diseases that affect five million people worldwide. There is no cure, no known cause, and little public understanding of the pain and chronic suffering with which IBD patients courageously cope every day of their lives.
We’ll be posting on our Facebook Page short videos from IBD patients, and healthcare professionals, to celebrate another year fighting IBD and give support to IBD warriors.
EDGE will be hosting our second patient webinar (in Arabic) with open invitation for all patients and all the public community to know more about IBD. Invited speakers are eminent IBD consultants, together with a nutritionist, psychiatrist, dermatologist, rheumatologists, and others!
