Mission and vision

In 2003 a group of enthusiastic gastro-enterologists have founded the "Initiative on Crohn and Colitis" (ICC). They agreed to join forces in the field of IBD research with the goal to improve the quality of life of patients with chronic bowel diseases.

ICC’s mission is to improve the quality of life of IBD patients by means of scientific research on the pathogenesis of IBD and by developing and implementing new therarpies (innovation of patient care).
ICC has committed itself to 3 spearheads: health care and information to patients suffering from Crohn and colitis ulcerosa, teaching doctors and nurses and medical scientific research for the cause and cure of chronic intestinal suffering.
