Programs

Currently MMW runs Acupuncture and Oriental Integrative Care clinics in 3 locations in Nepal. We have been invited to expand our programs of primary health care to sites in Bhutan and the Northern Thai border to work with hilltribe villages without access to medical care. MMW recruits skilled integrative medical professionals who have experience in their field as well as in developing areas of the world. After a rigorous application process, we train them in preparation for their service in a host country. While they treat patients in the clinic, up to 50 per day, the volunteers also mentor and teach Chinese Medicine to local staff who are involved in our training program to become health care providers themselves. These locals are hired by MMW to interpret for our volunteers and patients in order to give them a job with a living wage, and the possibbility of a very bright future as a health care provider in their own country.
