Crohn & Colitis NL is the Dutch patient organization for the 90.000 Dutch patients with Crohn’s Disease or Ulcerative Colitis.
We help you get the right information about living with chronic bowel disease. You get our quarterly magazine Crohniek packed with stories of experience, articles and the latest developments. We keep you well informed through our website and monthly newsletter, social media and information leaflets. And watch our films where people talk about their daily lives with Crohn’s and colitis.
Meet other people with Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis. There are several ways to do this: online in our Facebook groups, by phone, at meetings near you or in your area. Our volunteers who have chronic bowel disease themselves are there for you!
We are in contact with healthcare providers and (healthcare) insurers, manufacturers and suppliers of medicines, scientists and government and stand up for your interests. We also cooperate with other patient associations and organizations. All kinds of subjects are discussed, such as the shortage of public toilets, the availability of medication, and so on. Together we make a fist and our staff and volunteers ensure that your voice is heard.
Thanks to our CC panel, we know how Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis affect your quality of life. Valuable information, which we use to advise doctors, nurses and researchers on how to improve the quality of care.
