What is a VCA?

This booklet is a new edition of VCA: a Federation Guide and shows some of the progress made in the use of VCA since the guide was first published in 1999. It illustrates how programmes can be better integrated with other projects so that they support each other. It also demonstrates how, through closer involvement with the community, many National Societies have been inspired and found renewed enthusiasm in their work to achieve the International Federation’s mission. The booklet also summarizes and represents the experience of many National Societies from around the world. This booklet forms part of a set of publications that support the VCA process for National Societies. The others are: How to do VCA; VCA toolbox; VCA training. Published in 2006.
