That's our common objective. Because Canada has among the highest rates of IBD in the world, with rates of childhood IBD continuing to climb.
The Canadian Children IBD Network (CIDsCaNN) brings together healthcare providers physicians, scientists, and allied health professionals from across Canada.

Understanding the environmental causes of IBD will help us find ways to prevent it. At the same time, there is an ever-pressing need for accurate diagnosis and to discover the best possible treatment for affected children.

You can learn more about C.H.I.L.D. and support their fundraising efforts on their website at child.ca
