THE ASSOCIATION OF EUROPEAN COELIAC SOCIETIES (AOECS) IS AN INDEPENDENT, NON-PROFIT ORGANISATION REPRESENTING PEOPLE AFFECTED BY COELIAC DISEASE OR DERMATITIS HERPETIFORMIS (DH) ACROSS EUROPE AND BEYOND.
AOECS is an umbrella organisation of European national coeliac societies, aiming to represent our 38 enrolled member societies on an international stage. We’re involved in several international initiatives to raise awareness of coeliac disease and encourage vital research into its diagnosis and management.
COLLABORATING WITH EUROPEAN AND INTERNATIONAL INSTITUTIONS AND COELIAC ORGANISATIONS, WE’RE WORKING TOWARDS:
the best possible safety, availability and labelling of products suitable for gluten intolerant people
encouraging more multi-national research projects on coeliac disease and DH
a more open exchange of information on coeliac, gluten intolerance, DH and their suitable diets
developing and sharing skills and knowledge, particularly among newer national coeliac societies, to support the social welfare of those affected by coeliac, gluten intolerance and DH.
