International Corresponding Membership

Eligible Countries

AGA is dedicated to providing resources for gastroenterologists around the world. As part of this mission, we introduced a new international tiered dues structure that gives members in developing countries access to full international membership benefits at a reduced rate. The only difference is that: (1) journal subscriptions are online only and (2) young GIs do not receive free access to GI SAM. 

The reduced dues eligibility is determined using the World Bank’s country classifications. The list of eligible countries is updated annually prior to billing for the upcoming year's dues.

If your country of residence is listed below, you are eligible to choose from the following membership types:
