GOVERNANCE

ALIMA (The Alliance for International Medical Action) is an international medical humanitarian organization, which fosters an innovative approach to humanitarian action, with operational partnerships at the heart of our activities. Our governance reflects this, as representatives of our local partner NGOs are members of ALIMA’s international Board of Directors.
