The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) is the global governing body of the Paralympic Movement.
The International Paralympic Committee supervises the organisation of the Summer and Winter Paralympic Games, and serves as the International Federation for ten sports, for which it oversees and co-ordinates the World Championships and other competitions, including Nordic skiing.
The IPC is committed to enabling Paralympic athletes to achieve sporting excellence and to developing sport opportunities for all persons with an impairment from the beginner to the high performance level. In addition, the International Paralympic Committee aims to promote the Paralympic values, which include courage, determination, inspiration and equality.
