The Behçet's Organisation Worldwide (BOW) is a voluntary, non-profit, self-help organization, whose aims and objectives are to assist patients and physicians by providing information about Behçet's disease and to advance public education into the causes and treatment of this disease and its associated conditions. Behçet's is a rare multisystem inflammatory disorder affecting the skin, eyes, and, in some instances, joints, blood vessels, central nervous system and/or digestive tract. The exact cause is unknown. Through its Books Into Local Libraries project, the BOW is creating an informational booklet about Behçet's, to be placed in local libraries and translated into several languages. The BOW is global in its approach, with coordinators in several countries and headquarters in the United Kingdom. It provides written material in English, Spanish, Portuguese, German, French, Italian and Arabic.
