May 7th to 10th, 2014 in Durban, South Africa
The 4th International Ibogaine Provider’s Conference took place between May 7th and 10th, 2014 at the Blue Waters Hotel in Durban, South Africa. The event consisted of 3 days of private meetings for GITA members, regarding research and practice around the therapeutic and traditional uses of iboga and ibogaine. It was followed by a public presentation, and a two day seminar with dialogue directed more specifically at protocol details.
Discussions covered a broad spectrum of topics, from developments in research, treatment protocol, and legislation, but the featured topic of interest for the conference will be launching The Iboga Dialogues, a multi-stakeholder discussion to establish standards around safety and sustainability in the production and use of ibogaine. The meeting successfully established a connection between GITA and organizations in Gabon, and was followed by a visit to Gabon to meet with authorities and ministries.
