Tomorrow patients and healthcare professionals around the world will celebrate World Digestive Health Day (WDHD) to show their respect for and raise awareness of the many patients who suffer from liver diseases and other diseases in- and outside the digestive system.

To this end, EASL is supporting the efforts of United European Gastroenterology (UEG) and the European Society of Neurogastroenterology and Motility (ESNM), who produced a video visible on YouTube to educate the general population about the importance of maintaining a healthy gut and hence, prevent liver cancer and many other diseases.

Please view the video and share it via your social media networks.
