Global Standards

OIWW has set forth Global Standards for international orphan care, covering both full care and family care of orphaned or abandoned children. The OIWW Global Standards – about 20 pages long – are posted on line. This is the only standard for international orphan care readily available to the public.
They were approved and amended at OIWW’s biennial World Congresses held in Bali (2004), Aceh (2005), Columbia University (2006), and N.Y.U. Medical School (2008). These Global Standards include OIWW’s non-participation in international adoption.
