This year, the European Society for Gastroenterology Hepatology and Nutrition (ESPGHAN) joined forces with the European Federation of Crohn’s & Colitis Associations (EFCCA) to drive awareness of the hidden costs of paediatric inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) and make the invisible visible. This feature puts the hidden cost of paediatric IBD in the spotlight and the author makes the case for policy makers to recognise the invisible cost of paediatric IBD. He pledges to take four key steps to reduce the burden of the diseases on society and improve the lives of children and their families.
