IFFGD is dedicated to informing, assisting, and supporting people affected by gastrointestinal disorders. We have been working since 1991 to broaden understanding about gastrointestinal disorders and support research.

Loss of bowel control, or incontinence, is a condition which is surprisingly widespread yet masked by silence. We developed the Reporter’s Guide to Bowel Incontinence to provide writers, those working in media outlets, and other interested parties with accurate information helpful in covering or understanding this condition.

The Guide provides:

  • Background information about bowel incontinence and its effects on sufferers and society
  • Frequently asked questions
  • A glossary of medical terms
  • Resource references
  • Suggested story ideas and reasons for writing about bowel incontinence
