The Kalinga Gastroenterology Foundation (KGF)
The Kalinga Gastroenterology Foundation (KGF) is a charitable
educational Trust dedicated to the cause of advancing Gastroenterology
especially in the state of Orissa. The Foundation was started in
1995.One of its major goals is to establish a highly developed center
for diagnoses and treatment of gastrointestinal and liver diseases in
the eastern part of India which would cater to underprivileged patients
not only from this state but also from other parts of the country.
In addition to developing such a center, it is also its endeavour to
educate the lay public about different aspects of gastrointestinal
diseases they ought to know so that they are aware about the preventive
aspects of these diseases on one hand and can seek appropriate advice
and treatment at the right time on the other hand. Besides, the
Foundation also takes initiative to sensitize the media to participate
in its mass health awareness programs. Further, the Foundation also
publishes a number of medical educational brochures in English and
different Indian languages for public distribution to generate awareness
about gastrointestinal health and diseases.
The Foundation also regularly conducts CMEs for the doctors to help them
to provide better treatment to their patients with gastrointestinal
disorders. The Foundation organizies a series of Digestive Diseases CME
including the Hepatitis B Symposium organized every year on the occasion
of HEPATITIS B ERADICATION DAY [28 July] and SL Bose Oration in memory
and honour of Late Prof SL Bose.
