Reasons For Giving

Did you know??

Digestive disorders – from diarrhea to obesity to cancer – are ranked by the WHO (World Health Organisation) in the ten leading causes of mortality, and are the single greatest cause of cancer death. Unfortunately, however, these disorders rank disproportionately low in both public awareness and healthcare priority in many countries.

It is only through the continuous education and training of gastroenterology professionals in their own countries that the WGO’s campaigns will succeed – from public awareness programs for Hepatitis in the developing world to preventative cancer screening in the developed world.

There are many benefits to be derived by supporting the WGO. You will be confident in the knowledge that your support has the ability to change one life or millions. You will stay informed of global digestive disorder news and fundraising events. And you will meet the world gastroenterology opinion makers, joining a community of caring supporters of the WGO.
