May 29 is World Digestive Health Day. Created in 2003 to commemorate the 45th anniversary of the establishment of the World Gastroenterology Organisation, World Digestive Health Day aims to raise awareness and provide resources and tools for gastrointestinal diseases and disorders.
Each year the WGO selects a specific campaign focus for World Digestive Health Day. The last two years focused on inflammatory bowel disease and viral hepatitis. This year, the campaign is emphasizing gastrointestinal cancers.
This activity is supported by educational grants from AbbVie, Inc.; Pfizer, Inc.; and Takeda Pharmaceuticals U.S.A., Inc.
