The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) was founded by and is made up of member National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies in 192 nations. It is the biggest volunteer-based humanitarian network in the world. The International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement includes the National Societies, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), and the IFRC. The IFRC’s overarching mission is “to inspire, encourage, facilitate, and promote at all times all forms of humanitarian activities by National Societies to prevent and alleviate human suffering and thereby contributing to the maintenance and promotion of human dignity and peace in the world.”
The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) is dedicated to supporting vulnerable individuals and improving their quality of life during and after emergencies, medical crises, and other disasters. To accomplish this, the IFRC relies on a global network of regional and national teams, as well as country offices located in Geneva. The organization is overseen by the IFRC Secretary General, who leads the Secretariat that serves as a central point for connecting and representing National Societies. The Secretariat’s main priorities include supporting IFRC governance mechanisms, setting standards and guidelines, providing guidance, ensuring coordination and accountability, sharing knowledge, promoting cooperation within the Movement, and strengthening partnerships.
According to the strategic priorities set forth by the IFRC in its Strategy 2030, technical assistance is provided by the IFRC in a variety of areas, including climate change, disaster and crisis management, health and WASH, migration and displacement, as well as empowerment and inclusion initiatives, with an emphasis on community health, immunization, livelihoods, and emergency response readiness. By assisting the urgent and long-term needs of the most affected communities, the IFRC national office has also increased its assistance to ARCS in the context of COVID-19 to address the health and socioeconomic effects of the epidemic. Additionally, the IFRC is helping ARCS by supporting the Humanitarian Crises Emergency Appeal.
