IBDesis Patient Support Group

IBDesis is the award-winning patient advocacy arm of SAIA and has a mission to unite and empower South Asians living with IBD around the globe. At SAIA, we recognise the importance of non-judgmental spaces in supporting and empowering patients and their caregivers to seek timely care, advocate for themselves and lead full lives. To ensure no IBD patient feels alone in their journey, we run a private patient support group on Facebook for IBD patients and caregivers of South Asian origin.”
