The International Alliance of Carer Organizations (IACO) has launched a first-of-its-kind study examining the role and impact of heart failure caregiving. The study was supported by Novartis.
Findings reveal that despite the important influence caregivers have on the quality of life of heart failure patients, there is a significant unmet need for caregiver resources and support. The report studied carers in Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Learn more
Our Commitment to Carers
Once seen as a personal and private matter in family life, unpaid caregiving has become one of the most important social and economic policy issues worldwide. IACO members are working collaboratively and independently to raise awareness of carers, identify and disseminate best practices and enhance carer well-being. Together we will:
Facilitate international advocacy
to advance programs, policies, and legislation that support caregiver well-being.
of the role and needs of carers as an international issue.
Promote the sharing
of best practices in caregiving programs between countries.
Encourage and provide assistance
to countries interested in developing family carer organizations.
The terms caregiver, family caregiver and carer are used interchangeably by IACO members.
