Who We Are

who we are

The Digestive Health Alliance (DHA) is the grassroots arm of the International Foundation for Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders (IFFGD), a nonprofit education and research organization. We are a community of individuals affected by FGIMDs; digestive conditions about which little is understood and few (if any) treatment options exist. DHA works to inspire change through coordinated fundraising, advocacy, and awareness efforts.
