Welcome to the English version of the International Contergan Thalidomide Alliance website.

We are a campaigning umbrella body that brings together people affected by thalidomide – or Contergan as it was known in Germany – from all over the world.

Our aim is simple: To secure justice and support for all of those who were injured in the womb by the drug thalidomide.

We hold governments and Chemie Grunenthal responsible for the thalidomide tragedy.

We will not rest until those responsible have acknowledged their social and moral responsibilities.
