Reference Centres

Red Cross reference centres promote collaboration, knowledge-sharing, and innovation across our global network along with humanitarian partners. In doing so, they help support strong and sustainable National Societies and improve the collective humanitarian impact and influence of our Movement. Some reference centres are set up in partnership with the IFRC (referred to as IFRC reference centres). In other cases, one or more National Society may come together to create a National Society reference centre or network.
