Who we are, vision, mission and work focus

The Global Self-Care Federation exists to create a healthier world through better self-care.

We represent associations and manufacturers in the self-care industry, working closely with our members and relevant stakeholder groups to ensure evidence-based self-care products and solutions are recognized as key contributors to health for individuals and systems worldwide.

Our work ensures key policy and decision-makers embrace self-care, recognize its values and use its broad range of benefits as the building blocks to deliver better and more sustainable health outcomes for all.

In our role as a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) in official relations with the World Health Organization, we represent the self-care and self-medication industry and contribute to WHO’s Public Health goals through our specialized expertise.
