International Paralympic Committee (IPC)
The IPC is the global governing body of the Paralympic Movement.

The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) is the international governing body of sports for athletes with a disability and acts as the International Federation for 12 sports. It supervises and co-ordinates the Paralympic Summer and Winter Games and other multi-disability competitions, eg, World Championships. The IPC also supports the recruitment and development of athletes at a local, national and international level across all performance levels.

The IPC was founded on 22 September 1989 as an international non-profit organization formed and run by around 160 National Paralympic Committees (NPCs) from five regions and four disability specific international sports federations (IOSDs).
