This is the website of Malta Association of Crohn's and Ulcerative Colitis (MACC) and is intended mainly as an online resource for people living in the Maltese islands and who suffer from Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis.

Living with these conditions is a difficult journey with many twists and turns, and one will have various questions at different points along the way. A number of topics on this site will provide you with knowledge and support, which we hope will empower you to play an active role in managing your illness throughout your journey. Among the topics covered are:

- What is Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)?

- What are Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis?

- What are the symptoms?

- How is IBD treated?

- What do you expect from a visit to your doctor?

- How to develop a treatment plan

- How to control and achieve more with IBD

- How to gain confidence when talking to others about your IBD

- Kids & teens issues

- Latest research and news on IBD

This site also has a Members' Area where MACC members will have personalised access to parts of this area and can gain special benefits. At the same time, prospective members can find details on how to join MACC by clicking here.

Most of the information found in this site was made available to MACC by European Federation of Crohn's and Ulcerative Colitis Associations (EFCCA) through their Life and IBD website. We are very grateful to EFCCA for giving us permission to reproduce material from their Life and IBD website. It is hoped that in future, most, if not all, of the information found on this site will be made available in the Maltese language.

Whilst hoping that you will find this site interesting, useful and relevant to your needs, we would appreciate any feedback that will help us improve on the content.
