How we help our members
As PR agency
We continually lobby to get TCM therapies included in Europe’s national health systems, and covered by social and private insurance companies.
As an information network
We hold a wealth of experience that we share for the benefit of every member. From informal meet ups to news letters, special events and forum discussions.
As a quality standard for education and practition
We aim to help member organisations to develop accreditation systems for Traditional Chinese Medicine education within their countries so that quality of TCM education can be maintained for proficient professional practice. Parity of educational standards will help foster greater freedom of movement across Europe.
As an aid to academic growth and research
We aim to strengthen international academic exchange and assist academic collaboration with European colleges and universities. We promote scientific research into the safety, validity, usefulness, and efficacy of TCM therapies.
As a lobbying agency
We lobby for the common interests of our members by getting a voice on relevant EU committees and forums concerned with complementary therapies. This way we can inform and educate decision makers on policy and provision, with particular reference to TCM therapies.
