Although the current world population is about 7 billion behaving human organisms, only very few of these are trained in behavior analysis, fewer practice behavior analysis, and most are located within the borders of the United States. Need exists all over the world. This panel will discuss efforts of a number of United States-based behavior analysts to equip others in areas outside of the United States to help fulfill this need. We will discuss issues pertaining to funding, training, credentialing, travel, cultural learning opportunities, translation, and other areas. We will also related experiences pertaining to each of these areas regarding our work in China, Russia, Belarus, and Middle Eastern countries.
