The IBTA is led by people with first-hand experience of living with a brain tumour. The list below of our supporters gives a sense of the IBTA’s extensive reach and the notable work our members do. This can be in the most challenging of environments, for example where healthcare, medicines and equipment for brain tumour treatments and care do not exist, are in short supply or not accessible equitably. We know that by working together with other organisations and initiatives we can achieve more.

Map explanation:

The map shows countries of the world in green where brain tumour patient and caregiver advocacy organisations that work with the IBTA are located.  The IBTA also distributes its free magazine, Brain Tumour, in 113 countries, including those where its supporters are based. Brain Tumour magazine reaches deep into the international brain tumour community and covers stories from patients, family members, carers, healthcare specialists, researchers, scientists and professional societies. Between 13,000 and 14,000 thousand copies of Brain Tumour magazine are printed and approximately 10,000 are mailed for free directly to contacts on the IBTA’s unique database. The remainder of the magazines are distributed at scientific and patient conferences throughout the year. Countries where the IBTA magazine is distributed are indicated in yellow on the map and the magazine is also sent to our supporting organisations and thousands of individuals located in countries noted in green.
