Conclusions: Digestive diseases are responsible for a major economic burden. Scientists in this field have established international recognition, but research support lags behind the need to correct the economic burden and to provide future generations of scientists in the digestive sciences. There is need for government to readdress this shortcoming and to review its method of support.
