Inaugural World IBS Day Launches April 19th for 700 Million Worldwide IBS Sufferers
Date:4/17/2019

The IBS Patient Support Group, an online patient community for IBS sufferers, announced a new initiative this April to designate April 19th as World IBS Day to raise awareness for Irritable Bowel Syndrome Patients and to show strong support for research & healthcare professionals in their pursuit to find treatments. Irritable Bowel Syndrome is a common digestive disorder which can significantly impair a patient’s quality of life. It affects roughly 10% of the global population or 700 million people worldwide.

World IBS Day asks for people to use the hashtags #LetsTalkIBS, #IBSAwarenessDay or #WorldIBSDay on social platforms. For every tweet, post or #hashtag on April 19th, 10 cents will be donated to support research and education for IBS.

The World IBS Day website is located at worldibsday.org and is supported on this inaugural year by organizations and individuals from Australia, United Kingdom, Canada and the United States. Organizations, institutions, vendors and industry involvement are invited to join in via the website.

Alison Reid, CEO The IBS Network (UK) commented that, “As the national charity supporting people in the UK we are happy to be involved in anything that will raise the profile of this often debilitating condition and encourage people to talk about their experiences living with IBS.”

Jeffrey Roberts, Founder IBS Patient Support Group stated that, “We created World IBS Day to take place every year on April 19th to unite the world to raise awareness about IBS under one banner. We believe that World IBS Day begins a new conversation about Irritable Bowel Syndrome where it is hoped that worldwide awareness activities will culminate on a single day to talk about patients, education, research and support for healthcare professionals and their efforts to find treatment options.”
