Public Affairs Committee

The Public Affairs Committee is responsible for raising awareness of digestive disease among specialists and decision-makers at the European level.

The committee, supported by professional staff in our Brussels office, is in regular contact with Members of the European Parliament (MEPs), Representatives of the European Commission and Council, as well as other EU stakeholders, to promote digestive disease on the EU health agenda.
