The Experiences of Bangladeshi People with IBD

Researchers at the University of Greenwich are looking for Bangladeshi people with Crohn's or Colitis (the two main forms of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)) who prefer speaking Bengali or Sylheti to take part in a study exploring their experiences. 

This new study funded by Bowel Research UK will gain a preliminary insight into Bangladeshi patients’ experiences of living with IBD as a means to informing a larger, follow-on study with a range of ethnic minority groups in the UK.

Your involvement will help to develop and test a survey method to collect data from a larger number of Bangladeshi participants about their experiences of living with IBD.

You can find more detailed information about this study in information sheets that have been developed in both Bengali or English.

If you are interested and would like more information about the study, please contact Dr Salina Ahmed (

This research study is NOT funded or organised by Crohn's & Colitis UK and, therefore, we cannot take responsibility for your involvement in the research. It is a patient’s choice to take part.
