WGO AND YINI WORKING TOGETHER FOR SUPPORTING YOU WITH YOUR LACTOSE INTOLERANCE

In 2017, World Gastroenterology Organisation (WGO) and ‘Yogurt In Nutrition Initiative for a balanced diet’ (YINI), codeveloped an education campaign. Supported by an unrestricted medical education grant from YINI, the education campaign aims to raise awareness and knowledge of digestive health, lactose intolerance, lactose maldigestion and the effects yogurt may have on lactose intolerants and lactose maldigesters.

Educational resources developed to support the campaign include a substantial Question and Answer (Q&A), a White Book and an Infographic, all discussing Lactose Intolerance and Lactose Maldigestion. To view all educational resources and/or to download them as a PDF, visit www.worldgastroenterology.org/wgo-foundation/your-digestive-health/wgo-yini-education-campaign.

WGO offers many other educational resources to support your digestive health; to access them visit www.worldgastroenterology.org/wgo-foundation/your-digestive-health.
