12 The UHM’s MissionTo ensure access to traditional and humanitarian medicine in healthcare globally by affecting health policies of nation states to help underserved people; and to promote humanitarian values through education in “Traditional Medicine” (also called “Integrative Medicine,” “Humanitarian Medicine”) honoring “Natural Medicine.”

14 The UHM’s Goals:Develop and operate educational programs in humanitarian medicine for the general public, undergraduate and graduate students, and for practicing physicians.To provide humanitarian services in collaboration with the WONM Clinics for Humanity Project in communities with challenged technological, financial, and human resources.
15 “Each One Teaches One”We believe in this philosophy and practice to spread empowerment until the whole village, town, city, county, and country is better informed and self-sufficient. This can only be achieved by protecting and promoting the practice of Traditional Medicine in healthcare, along with clinical practices best suited and most cost-effective to indigenous people.Education for empowerment is the key to poverty relief, not “hand-outs.”
16 University of Humanitarian Medicine Foundation (UHMF) and the Canadian College of Humanitarian Medicine (CCHM)Operates to affect policy changes that increase humanitarian and “Traditional Medicine” in health care, while addressing the root causes of health inequities.Collaborates with other educational institutions and organizations advancing humanitarian medicine-related activities.Advances educational programs that reflect our humanitarian mission of teaching and researching to improve patient care and community service.
18 HumanitarianismHumanitarianism is the doctrine that people's duty is to promote human welfare.Humanitarianism in health care embraces the idea of people administering humane treatment(s) to assist others in the safest and most cost effective manner(s).Humanitarianism drives people to save lives, alleviate suffering, and promote human dignity.
19 Disaster & Health Management Humanitarianism is based on a view that all human beings deserve respect and dignity and should be treated as such. Therefore, humanitarians work towards advancing the well-being of humanity as a whole.
20 Humanitarian Medicine Alleviates suffering, unconditionally, without financial or ulterior motive.Affirms the conviction that all people have equal dignity by virtue of their membership in humanity, thus, deserve assistance whenever needed, and where ever possible, without discrimination.
22 Humanitarian Medicine Embraces the humanitarian aspects of all healthcare and healing paradigms.Respects life and the premise to “do no harm.”Encourages treatments in “Traditional Medicine.”Emphasizes self-care and personal empowerment.Promotes prevention and inexpensive, and most cost-effective, health care.
23 Why UHMF-CCHM Advances Humanitarian Medicine: Governments are restricted in providing cost-effective primary and preventative healthcare to the poor.Affordable health care is also needed where allopathic medicine, including vaccinations, has failed.Health and safety is damaged by war economies.A world-wide organization is needed to advance peace along with reasonable traditional or natural health care.A most honorable and responsible paradigm for world health and lasting peace is available now by advancing Humanitarian Medicine.
