  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.
