International Blue Cross

We protect people from being harmed by alcohol and drugs. As a non-governmental organisation IBC unites 40 national organisations under its umbrella. That makes it possible for us to engage worldwide in protecting the most vulnerable and offering them better prospects. We advocate for a society free of violence, discrimination and addiction-related illness!

Fields of Intervention

  • alcohol and drug prevention programmes
  • therapy and counselling
  • policy advice and lobbying

A professional actor in international development cooperation, IBC places the utmost importance on the sustainability of its programmes. We achieve long-lasting impact by equipping people to help themselves, simultaneously influencing decision-makers, pressing for effective policies to protect people. Our special focus is on alcohol and drug prevention programmes for the youth. IBC is ZEWO-certified and holds consultative status at the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations (UN ECOSOC).
