Mission statement

In 2013, a group of 17 people with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), gastroenterologists, nurses and patient support groups met to identify information and service needs for people with IBD in Australia. One common need across stakeholder groups was for an information portal to connect all of the IBD information sources in Australia and beyond that put people in touch with trustworthy, evidence-based information. Therefore, OwnYourIBD.com.au is designed as an information portal for Australians with or caring for someone with IBD.
