International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA)
The IAEA is an independent intergovernmental science and technology based organization within the United Nations. The IAEA works with its Member States and multiple partners worldwide to promote the safe, secure and peaceful use of nuclear technologies.
The IAEA Human Health Programme supports Member States in using nuclear techniques to prevent, diagnose and treat non-communicable diseases. This programme provides a holistic approach to the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of such diseases, covering four main support areas: nutrition; diagnosis and follow-up; radiation oncology and radiotherapy; and quality assurance.
The IAEA supports education and training of health professionals in imaging for the development and expansion of the discipline in its Member States. Fellowships are granted for professionals working in the field; workshops and conferences are organized at the national and regional level in specialized topics of diagnostic imaging. Moreover, to enhance professional knowledge of health professionals in radiation medicine (nuclear medicine and diagnostic imaging, radiation oncology, and medical physics), the IAEA incorporates educational resources into the Human Health Campus web site. E-learning modules, interactive webinars, training courses and teaching material are included in the Campus to address the needs of the Member States in the field of diagnostic imaging.
