Läkarmissionen is a foundation, governed by the Board of Directors and Management Team, and controlled by auditors and external organisations. Since 2019, IAS is a part of Läkarmissionen.
As in most other organisations, the Management Team (led by General Secretary Lars Arrhenius) is responsible for the daily operations, while the Board of Directors is responsible for more strategic decisions and policy making.
Läkarmissionen has an Advisory Board consisting of 41 elected members. On Läkarmissionen's annual meeting in April, the Advisory Board elects the Board of Directors, their own members, auditor and the members of the nominating committee.
Our auditors ensure that we meet the highest standards both in our core business and our governance. We have also chosen to be a member of a number of external organisations who also have auditing functions.
Since January 1 2019, the aid organisation International Aid Services, IAS, is an integral part of Läkarmissionen. Our IAS country offices in Africa carry out several interventions, both development and humanitarian projects.
As many of our aid projects are runby local partners in other countries, we have established Regional Resource Centers to strengthen these partnerships and have a clos follow-up on projects. We have centers in Miami, USA (for Latin America), in Kampala, Uganda (for Eastern Africa) and one in Chiang Mai, Thailand (for Asia).
