The International Brain Tumour Alliance (IBTA) is the only global network for brain tumour patient organisations and others involved in the field of neuro-oncology.

We receive no government grants or statutory funding and are wholly dependent on the generosity of people who support our vital work.

Please consider making a donation to help us with our advocacy and awareness raising activities. Your generosity can help us to:

  • increase information and support facilities for patients and caregivers. We work with local people to help set up new brain tumour patient groups in countries where they don’t yet exist;
  • share and disseminate knowledge, information and best practice through our website, communications and publications;
  • raise international awareness of this devastating disease by involving our worldwide community in the IBTA’s two main global events: ‘International Brain Tumour Awareness Week’ (end of October/beginning of November each year) and ‘The Walk Around the World for Brain Tumours’ (from 1 January to 31 December each year);
  • shape health and research policies and practice nationally and internationally, representing the brain tumour patient and carer voice at government and regulatory levels as well as at high profile international scientific conferences, committees and meetings.

Thank you.
