    International Organisations of Sports for the Disabled

    International Organisations of Sports for the Disabled (IOSDs) are independent organisations recognised by the IPC as the sole representatives of a specific impairment group.

    The IPC currently recognises four IOSDs:

    - Cerebral Palsy International Sports and Recreation Association (CPISRA)

    - International Blind Sports Federation (IBSA)

    - International Sports Federation for Persons with an Intellectual Disability (INAS)

    - International Wheelchair and Amputee Sports Federation (IWAS).

    IOSDs work in conjunction with the IPC to provide specific expertise to develop sport for athletes with an impairment from the grassroots level to the elite level. They act as the governing body for some of the impairment specific sports that are a part of the Paralympic Games programme.
