Message from Prof. Dr. Tomris TÜRMEN, President of ICC

In democratic societies, the voice of the people is heard through civil society. The civil society, in the areas of its interest, conveys its views, demands to the Government. It draws the government’s attention to the shortcomings, proposes alternative solutions, monitors its practices and serves as a pressure group.

In societies where civil society is not functioning freely, the relationship between the people and the State is based on interest, whereas civil society organizations are non-interest, non-profit. ICC as a civil society organization bases its work on research and evidence and works as a strong advocate in the areas of health and human rights with a special emphasis on child rights. Our priority work areas are newborn health, early childhood development, nutrition, child health and rights, violence against women and children, justice for children, sexual abuse, health and rights of adolescents and young people, women’s health, sexual and reproductive health and rights.

In addition to research and advocacy, ICC believes in capacity building, networking and strengthening grass-roots organizations working in the same field. The work of the ICC is outlined in our progress reports.

ICC will continue to work towards a society where each individual will enjoy fully his rights and freedoms and benefit from good health and well being.
