International Blue Cross (IBC)
In many countries, the harmful use of alcohol and drugs hinder sustainable social and economic development. People live in precarious conditions in need, unemployment and without perspective. International Blue Cross is therefore committed to reducing the negative impact of alcohol and drug use worldwide and to enabling a constructive coexistence in societies - free of violence, oppression and addiction-related diseases! From Switzerland to the Faroe Islands, from Congo to Brazil - since 1886, IBC has been committed to those who live on the margins of society and seek to alleviate their hardship.
As a non-governmental umbrella organisation, IBC coordinates the activities of nearly 40 affiliated member organisations in 37 countries. They form a network that helps people on four continents lead an addictive-free life.
As a global health organisation, IBC also implements international development cooperation programmes in line with the United Nations 2030 Agenda. Programme activities include alcohol and drug prevention, treatment and counselling as well as international policy advice and lobbying.
Since 2013, IBC implements programmes with local partners in the Republic of Chad, the Republic of the Congo and Togo.See more
