Public Affairs Group

What we do

We are responsible for raising awareness of digestive health among specialists and decision-makers at the European level.

We are in regular contact with Members of the European Parliament (MEPs), Representatives of the European Commission and Council, as well as other EU stakeholders, to promote digestive health on the EU agenda.
