Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of World IBD Day.

World IBD Day takes place on May 19th each year and unites people worldwide in their fight against Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, known as inflammatory bowel diseases.

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.

World IBD Day is led by patient organisations representing over 50 countries on five continents and is coordinated by EFCCA.
