About UEG EU Affairs

30% of the European population is affected by a GI disease at least once during their lifetime. Even so, gastroenterology is still not a priority on the health agenda.

Our Vision

To listen to and learn from public opinion and to increase knowledge and stimulate activity in the area of digestive diseases among the public and politicians.
