The TCIH Declaration has been initiated by a forum of international and national sponsoring organisations representing healthcare practitioners, scientists and patients that have joined forces for the occasion of the TCIH Declaration. The sponsoring organisations represent a worldwide community of users and practitioners of traditional, complementary and integrative healthcare (TCIH) of a diversity of backgrounds and experiences, with a common commitment to the advancement and promotion of TCIH. The sponsoring organisations support practices that are evidence-based through integrating clinical experience and patient values with the best available research information.
The Secretariat of the TCIH Declaration is currently provided by the International Federation of Anthroposophic Medical Associations (IVAA), one of the sponsoring organisations. The views and perspectives of signatory organisations are included in the coordination of the TCIH Declaration communications and advocacy through regular video calls.
Below, you will find details on each of the sponsoring organisations. For more information, please consult the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) section.
