Fostering International Action for Carers
IACO is a coalition of national non-governmental carer organizations working together to identify and address common caregiver challenges with the intent to increase awareness of the needs of caregivers and influence policy, programs and services in individual countries.
Established in 2012, the International Alliance of Carer Organizations (IACO) serves as an umbrella organization that provides cohesive direction, facilitates information sharing, and actively advocates for carers at an international level.
IACO provides research, awareness and education regarding family carers on a global scale. By bringing visibility and an understanding of the growing numbers of carers worldwide, IACO facilities international collaboration by bringing together countries from around the globe that advocate for family carers.
