The International Port Welfare Partnership (IPWP) Programme is an ISWAN pilot project funded by the International Transport Workers' Federation Seafarers' Trust and managed by the Merchant Navy Welfare Board.
The project aims to encourage and support the establishment of welfare boards worldwide in accordance with the International Labour Organization Maritime Labour Convention, 2006.
