White Book 2.0

The burden of digestive diseases and related research gaps 

UEG commissioned a new survey to update and extend the results of the previous White Book from 2014. This new analysis is led by Tanith Rose and Benjamin Barr from Liverpool university. It will update data on the burden of digestive diseases, identify gaps and unmet needs in the research base, provide evidence and advice to EU funding bodies and decision makers on priority areas, and foster collaborations with UEG Member Societies to raise political and public awareness of the importance of digestive health. The analysis started in October 2020 and will take two years.
