World Gastroenterology Organisation (WGO) - Global Guardian of Digestive Health. Serving the World.

World Digestive Health Day/Year

Every 29th May, WGO celebrates World Digestive Health Day and initiates a worldwide public health campaign through its more than 100 national societies which reach over 50,000 members. Each year focuses upon a particular digestive disorder in order to increase general public awareness of prevention and therapy.

"We hope, that by naming May 29 World Digestive Health Day, we can create awareness around the world for our profession. We also hope that this day will help unite gastroenterologists worldwide. Your support and input would be most welcome. We encourage all WGO member societies to participate by arranging such events in their regions to commemorate this day. We would be pleased to receive ideas from you as to how you feel we can mark this day in the future. Please send comments to: info@worldgastroenterology.org"
