Tammuz Organization for Social Development (TOSD)

The Tammuz Organization for Social Development (TOSD) was founded in northern Iraq in 1997 under the name Al-Wafaa Association. In May 2003, it opened an office in Baghdad and currently has six other offices across the country: in Erbil, Dhi Qar, Babylon, Missan, Basra and Anbar. The organization supports community health, education, professional training and public consultation programs, as well as research and assessment programs. Since 2005, during electoral processes TOSD stations thousands of volunteers all over the country to observe the elections and report any election law violations.
