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.
