Coordinated by the National Societies Committee, a particular focus with these support programmes is put on promoting and disseminating appropriate guidelines and standards in various formats together with member societies to encourage their uptake.
The PRO-MC Collaboration, led by the Svensk Gastroenterologisk Förening (Sweden) and the Asociación Española de Gastroenterología (Spain), is endorsed and co-funded by the UEG.
