The North American Society for Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and Nutrition, founded in 1972, is the only society in North America and the largest in the world, dedicated to serving the Pediatric Gastroenterology and nutrition communities. NASPGHAN was established to advance the understanding of the normal development and physiology of diseases of the gastrointestinal tract and liver in infants, children, and adolescents, and to foster the dissemination of this knowledge through scientific meetings, professional education, public education, and interaction with other organizations concerned with Pediatric Gastroenterology and nutrition.
FISPGHAN was founded in the year 2000, by pediatric professional societies wishing to promote worldwide cooperation and education among pediatric gastroenterologists. The primary role of FISPGHAN has been to facilitate the World Congress of Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition (WCPGHAN), which currently occurs every four years.
