The International Ventilator Users Network (IVUN) is an international, non-profit organization dedicated to supporting the independent living, self-direction, dignity, and personal achievement of ventilator users. Established in 1987, IVUN endeavors to network ventilator users and their families with other affected families and with healthcare professionals committed to home mechanical ventilation. The organization also compiles and disseminates information including a quarterly newsletter entitled "Ventilator-Assisted Living" and the annually updated "Resource Directory for Ventilator-Assisted Living." IVUN is an affiliate of Post-Polio Health International, formerly Gazette International Networking Institute, which was founded in 1960 as a source of information about polio and its late effects.
