Mission & Constitution


The Association for the WORLD FEDERATION OF INTERVENTIONAL AND THERAPEUTIC NEURORADIOLOGY, hereinafter WFITN, which is governed by the Act of 1 July 1901 and was duly declared at the Police Headquarters of PARIS on 21 March 1990, whose registered office is situated in PARIS, 8th arrondissement, 7, Rue de Castellane and which is represented by its President in office, Mrs Sirintara PONGPECH, who has been duly authorized for the purposes of these articles pursuant to a resolution of the Board of Directors of 08.02.2018, Hereinafter the “Founder”, has decided to set up an endowment fund which shall be governed by the Economic Modernization Act n° 2008-776 of 4 August 2008 (Official Journal of 5 August 2008), Decree n° 2009-158 of 11 February 2009 and by these articles.

The WFITN today has scientific and competitive capacities on an international level but the pooling of knowledge on this specialized medical discipline as well as the search and training of new neuroradiologists means that the Federation needs to have sufficient resources and be structured for the sake of its credibility both in France and abroad.

It is for these reasons that the WORLD FEDERATION OF INTERVENTIONAL AND THERAPEUTIC NEURORADIOLOGY felt it was indispensable to set up an endowment fund.
