The idea of the World Ostomy Day was born in 1993 and its father is Professor Dr. Gerhard Englert who at that time was the President of IOA.
In the United States National Ostomy Awareness Day began in 2010. It is held annually on the first Saturday of October. UOAA continues to celebrate this day by spreading awareness and increasing national visibility of those living with ostomies. While focusing on different inspiring themes, each year through our collective voice we will reach out to the general public, carry on breaking the silence and shining a positive light on what has saved so many lives.
