ALIMA promotes an innovative approach to humanitarian action with operational partnerships at the heart of our activities. Our governance reflects this: representatives of partner NGOs are members of ALIMA’s Board of Directors.
The Alliance for International Medical Action (ALIMA) is an international medical aid organization registered in France under the Association Law of 1901 with its operational headquarters in Dakar, Senegal. ALIMA-USA is registered in the USA as a non-profit organization under the IRS status of 501(c)(3). ALIMA Australia is a registered Charity by the Australian Charities and Not-for-Profits Commission (ACNC).
ALIMA, ALIMA-USA, and ALIMA-Australia are distinct organizations working towards the same goal. ALIMA-USA and ALIMA-Australia work to support and fundraise for ALIMA and its operations.
ALIMA's governance is governed by the founding texts of ALIMA, namely its By-laws and Rules and Regulations.
