TFI as an umbrella organization recognizes full members and associate members. Only
full members have voting rights.
Full members are non-profit, non-governmental and fully independent. They have a
legal status appropriate to their country of origin. They demonstrate commitment to
thyroid patients and the principle of patient-centred and evidence-based healthcare in
their guiding statements.
Representatives of Associate members may attend the annual meeting, but they have
neither voting rights, nor do they pay membership fees.
