Digestive Health Across Europe - Issues, Challenges and Inequalities
The healthcare and socio-economic impact that is inflicted by digestive diseases continues to grow across Europe.
'Digestive Health Across Europe - Issues, Challenges and Inequalities' reveals alarming information in a range of chronic digestive diseases, including digestive cancers, alcohol-related digestive diseases and paediatric digestive diseases.
The report was published in alignment with the launch of the European Parliament Interest Group on Digestive Health. The mission of this group is to raise awareness of chronic digestive diseases and promote policy initiatives relating to tackling these diseases, such as the prevention and treatment of digestive cancers, the importance of healthy nutrition and reduction of alcohol-related harm.
UEG welcome the European Parliament Interest Group on Digestive Health and look forward to close collaboration in achieving the group's mission to tackle the burden of chronic digestive diseases across Europe.
