Malteser International elected to the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC)


We have reached another significant milestone in furthering our humanitarian work to reach even more vulnerable people in their greatest times of need, in the Americas and around the world. We are proud to announce that Malteser International is now an organization in special consultative status with the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) since 2018 at the United Nations.

The special consultative status with ECOSOC allows Malteser International and its experts to shape conversation around the future of humanitarian relief. It also allows the Council or one of its bodies to seek expert information or advice from Malteser International due to our 60 years of special competence providing aid to the poor, sick, and suffering.

With more frequent disasters, ever-increasing humanitarian crises, and a greater number of people in dire need of humanitarian relief, having ECOSOC status positions Malteser International as a key humanitarian actor and at the forefront of global humanitarian relief.
