Charter of Medicina Alternativa
In 1962 WHO and UNICEF sponsored an International Conference at the University of Khazakistan, in Alma Ata in the Soviet Union, which resulted in the "Alma Ata Declaration":
A global strategy for public health and preventative medicine that required the commitment of all available curative methods, both orthodox and traditional: "Health for All by the Year 2000."
The aims of Medicina Alternativa are the following:
1 To advance the scientific study and professional practice of alternative medicines (also known as Complementary and Alternative Medicine) by encouraging its development, promoting research, living high standards of professional ethics, competence, conduct, education, qualification and achievement among practitioners.
2 To carry out the promotion and the dissemination of knowledge and philosophy of Alternative Medicines through local and International Meetings, lectures, seminars, workshops, reports, papers, discussions, publications and professional contacts.
3 To encourage a wide interest for Alternative Medicines among the public and medical spheres and all ancillary areas of knowledge and practice.
Medicina Alternativa conferred the mandate to carry out these policies onto the Senate of the Open International University for Complementary Medicines, founded by Prof. Anton Jayasuriya, to this day acting President.
Prof. Anton has trained over 30,000 doctors from over 140 countries in Complementary/Alternative Medicine (CAM). He has treated more than 2.5 million patients free of charge at the Colombo South Government General University Teaching Hospital, Kalubowila Medicina Alternativa Clinic, Sri Lanka using Integrative Medicines.
