Our Members

The IRCT exists because of and for its members. As a membership organisation, engagement by members is the driving force and democratic basis of the organisation.

With our 160 members in 76 countries, IRCT centres come in all shapes and sizes, from the highly specialised medical clinic working in a single city, to the local branch of sprawling social welfare organisation, working across a continent. Together, the sheer diversity of IRCT members’ expertise, gathered together in solidarity for a shared purpose, represents the organisation’s greatest strength.
