World Digestive Health Day 2019

29th May 2019

Team Guts UK wish you a Happy World Digestive Health Day

World Digestive Health Day is awaited with much excitement at Guts UK, as it sparks a global conversation surrounding gut health and diseases of the gut, liver and pancreas.

The theme for the World Digestive Health Day 2019 campaign is Early Diagnosis and Treatment of Digestive Cancers.

At Guts UK, we’re proud to be a member of the Less Survivable Cancers Taskforce (LSCT). Four of the six least survivable cancers are digestive and the current survival rate for these grouped together stands at just 14%. We want to change this, and double the survival rates to 28% by 2028. Every cancer patient should be given the best chance possible.

Guts UK have funded 27 research projects exploring digestive cancers. Read about our current, active research into digestive cancers here:

• Dr Sara Jamel: Oesophageal Cancer 

• Professor Colin Rees: Bowel/Colorectal Cancer

• Dr Wadiamu Gashau: Dysplasia & Colorectal Cancer – IBD

• Professor Laurence Lovat: Oesophageal Cancer
