Läkarmissionen is a foundation, governed by the Board of Directors and Management Team, audited by Grant Thornton Sweden and other external organisations.
The Management Team of 8 people is led by the General and Deputy General Secretary and responsible for the daily operations. The Board of Directors, consisting of 12 people, is responsible for more strategic decisions and policy making.
Läkarmissionen has an Advisory Board consisting of 41 elected members. On the General Assembly meeting in April, the Advisory Board elects the Board of Directors, their own members, auditor and the members of the nominating committee.
Our auditors, Grant Thornton Sweden, ensure that we meet the highest standards both in our core business and our governance. Läkarmissionen’s operation is largely financed by donations from private individuals in Sweden. The main fundraising channel for this is Läkarmissionen’s registered donor accounts, (“90-accounts”). These revenues are annually verified by The Swedish Fundraising Control and provide as such donor security.
Much of our development work is run by local partners. To strengthen these partnerships we are establishing Regional Offices. Their responsibility is to maintain a close relation and follow up with both partners as well as Läkarmissionen-IAS own implementing country offices. These operational bodies are located in Sudan, South Sudan, Niger, Chad, Ethiopia and Uganda.
