The European Federation of Crohn’s & Ulcerative Colitis Associations (EFCCA) is a non-profit organization committed to improving the lives of people with IBD and increase awareness around the world. The EFCCA does this by encouraging and facilitating networking opportunities, advocating for patients, and raising awareness for the condition.
The EFCCA website has many tabs and resources for people with IBD. Users can find information and facts about IBD and the science behind it. Elsewhere on the site, users can find information about projects, events, clinical trials, videos, links, news, and more.
While the EFCCA is based in Europe and is determined to help people dealing with IBD in the EU, they do collaborate with organizations throughout the world and advance research and awareness. Users can find more information about their partners and events around the world where they can get more involved with groups closer to home.
In the Multimedia tab, users can find and browse videos about IBD and personal stories from people dealing with their conditions. The videos are lengthy and well produced and give users insight into living with IBD and can empower patients to take control of their health.
