Overview

The Americas regional office of the Secretariat of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies covers 35 countries from North American to South America and the Caribbean islands – countries and regions that are highly diverse in political and socio-economic terms, geography, demography and culture, as well as public health trends and proneness to natural disasters. Membership services and programme support to the National Societies are therefore to be adapted to the real needs and local specifics.
