• International Alliance of Carer Organizations (IACO)

IACO members are working collaboratively and independently to raise awareness of carers, identify and disseminate best practices and enhance carer well-being.

Our Commitment to Carers

Once seen as a personal and private matter in family life, unpaid caregiving has become one of the most important social and economic policy issues worldwide. IACO members are working collaboratively and independently to raise awareness of carers, identify and disseminate best practices and enhance carer well-being. Together we will:

  • Facilitate international advocacy

    to advance programs, policies, and legislation that support caregiver well-being.

  • Increase awareness

    of the role and needs of carers as an international issue.

  • Promote the sharing

    of best practices in caregiving programs between countries.

  • Encourage and provide assistance

    to countries interested in developing family carer organizations.

The terms caregiver, family caregiver and carer are used interchangeably by IACO members.
