2022 Button Battery Ingestion Awareness Day

We are delighted to announce the launch of the very first International Button Battery Awareness Day on 12 June 2022.

ESPGHAN will be working alongside the European Portable Battery Association (EPBA) and others to drive attention for this critical issue and its devastating impact as we seek to prevent button battery ingestion in children.

As part of the campaign, we will be presenting recommendations and releasing a number of assets targeting the public, healthcare professionals and policymakers to help achieve our goal.

We hope you can join us for this year’s campaign and help spread the message.
