This May, Australia has joined more than 40 countries across the globe in a unified effort to raise awareness of Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD’s) that affect over 75,000 Australians and more than 5 million worldwide.
The event honours World IBD Day which is held every year on May 19.
This year’s efforts have focused on a global video campaign encouraging anyone impacted by IBD to share their story in a short video with the unifying theme of “United We Stand.”
Crohn’s & Colitis Australia is excited to join this project and you can watch our videos on CCA’s YouTube Channel.
To view the videos from the 40 countries which have joined the video campaign you can go to World IBD Day, 2015 YouTube Channel.
