Fostering International Action for Carers
A group of national and multinational non-governmental organizations have created a new international organization to investigate and address issues of international family caregiving with the intent of increasing public awareness of the needs of the family caregiver on a global scale.
Incorporated 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.
The National Alliance for Caregiving is proud to serve as secretariat for IACO.
