ECCO Congress bags 2020

This year, our ECCO Congress bags will again be produced by Township Partners®, a company supporting women entrepreneurship in township communities outside Cape Town, South Africa. Hence, the ECCO Congress bags are more than just a stylish accessory - they are a means of improving the lives of South African women who produce them in their own sewing cooperatives. 


Congress bag special: Every congress bag for prescribers will include a free copy of JCC - Journal of Crohn's and Colitis Issue 1/2020.
Please do not forget to pick up your ECCO Congress Bag!
