About WFRtDS

Ensuring Choices for a Dignified Death

The World Federation of Right to Die Societies, founded in 1980, consists of 49 right to die organizations from 26 countries. The Federation provides an international link for organizations working to secure or protect the rights of individuals to self-determination at the end of their lives.

The WFRtDS meets every two years to exchange news and views, to elect Directors and Officers of the Federation, and to conduct other business.

The most recent meeting was held in Capetown in September 2018.
