Our partners are a fundamental part of the work the International Blue Cross carries out on behalf of families, individuals and communities around the world. Their support to the Secretariat and Blue Cross network of 41 member organisations are instrumental in ensuring that we draw attention to the issues faced by dependent people and their families and implement life-changing projects in prevention, treatment, counselling and aftercare.
Through strategic partnerships and donations we achieve our mission and ensure all interventions of the Blue Cross are carried out considering our core values. With support from the below partners and donors, we work together with individuals and communities to overcome dependence in the true spirit of “Doing it Together!”
Strategic Partnerships & International Networks
The International Blue Cross works to promote its values and mission in partnership with other organisations, building on our history of increased effectiveness through collective initiatives. These partnerships range from informal to more formally defined relationships around areas of mutual interest. Activities include information sharing, coordination of activities, advancement of mutual learning and joint advocacy.
