EFCCA - European Federation of Crohn's and Ulcerative Colitis Associations
The European Federation of Crohn's & Ulcerative Colitis Associations is an umbrella organisation representing 29 national patients’ associations from 28 European countries and 3 associate members from outside Europe. EFCCA aims to work to improve life for people with IBD and give them a louder voice and higher visibility across Europe and beyond.
Type: pan-European disease-specific organisation
Disease area: Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (IBD). Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis (collectively known as inflammatory bowel diseases or IBD) are chronic inflammatory, non-infectious conditions involving the digestive system. They should not be confused with IBS (irritable bowel syndrome), which, despite similar symptoms, is a separate condition. Ulcerative colitis is restricted to the colon and/or the rectum, whereas Crohn’s disease can affect any part of the gastrointestinal tract. Ulcerative colitis is twice as common as Crohn’s disease.
