The WDHD theme for 2014 as declared by the World Gastroenterology Organisation (WGO) is "Gut Microbes - Importance in Health and Disease". Member societies including the South African Gastroenterology Society (SAGES) are encouraged to promote the theme at national level. To this end SAGES with generous support from Dr Reddy's Laboratories organised a lecture series held over three consecutive nights in May this year at venues in Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town. The key note speaker was Prof. Harry Pothoulakis who is the director of the Inflammatory Bowel Disease Research Center at the David Geffen School of Medicine, UCLA. It was my privilege to chair the Durban event.
