IFOS involvement in global outreach is one of its important mission.
IFOS is promoting global actions and all missions respecting the Charter of global mutual aid.

An international advisory board can receive through this website the needs and requests both from volunteers willing to help colleagues in a field of Otolaryngology-Head Neck surgery and from local teams willing to be helped.

In order to facilitate global actions, "demanders" and "givers" can be put in touch, and assistance will be provided, as much as possible, by IFOS


This interactive map allows you to view mission requests around the world (red markers). Place your mouse on the map and use the cursor to move on the map. It is possible to zoom.

You can always offer your help or ask for help by registering on the platform. When your request will be validated by a competent committee, you could contacting people who need help or conversely with people who wish to offer their help.

The reports of the finalized missions are available and are symbolized by blue markers.
