Objective: To provide a clinical practice guideline with the latest evidence for diagnosis and treatment of Helicobacter pylori infection for patients, caregivers, administrative and government bodies at all levels of care in Colombia. Materials and Methods: This guide was developed by a multidisciplinary team with the support of the Colombian Association of Gastroenterology, Cochrane STI Group and Clinical Research Institute of the Universidad Nacional de Colombia.

One guideline met the criteria for adaptation, so the group decided to adapt 4 clinical questions and to develop 10 de novo clinical questions. Systematic literature searches were conducted by the Cochrane Group. The tables of evidence and recommendations were made based on the GRADE methodology. The recommendations of the guide were socialized in a meeting of experts with government agencies and patients. Results: An evidence-based Clinical Practice Guidelines for the diagnosis and treatment of Helicobacter pylori infection was developed for the Colombian context. Conclusions: The opportune detection and appropriate management of Helicobacter pylori would contribute to the burden of the disease in Colombia and its associated diseases
