What is IFHE and IFHE-US?
IFHE stands for International Federation for Home Economics. It was founded in 1908 in Switzerland. IFHE is an International Non Governmental Organisation (INGO) in consultative status with the United Nations (ECOSOC, category 2 – FAO – UNESCO, operational relations – UNICEF) and with the Council of Europe.
The IFHE Constitution, modified effective July 1996, provides for a national country coordinating body in each country. The International Federation for Home Economics-United States (IFHE-US) has been organized for this purpose.
