For more than 25 years, Crohn’s & Colitis Australia™ (formerly the Australian Crohn’s and Colitis Association) has been making life more liveable for more than 70,000 Australian men, women and children living with these chronic illnesses. Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis can be diagnosed at any age, though it is most commonly diagnosed in people aged between 15 - 35 years when education, career and family building are at a peak.
While we invest in research and wait for a cure for inflammatory bowel disease, CCA will continue to advocate for world best treatments and health services for those living with Crohn’s and colitis. Through our programs we offer education and support for Australia’s growing Crohn’s and colitis community. Importantly, our services are offered free of charge. As we receive no funding from government sources, we rely on the generosity of volunteers, donors and community fundraising to continue our work.
