CHARTERS

We establish the fact that health care as well as spiritual care are equal and vital functions of the Church and this University. Health Sovereignty is the exercise of a Religious Group to provide, protect and promote health and education among its peoples. Healing is what happens when Christians and physicians minister in Jesus’ teachings, enabling people to receive restoration of health to body and mind through God’s great love and mercy. This restoration of health is part of what is meant by the ‘abundant life’ which the Lord promised.The first works of Christian service was organized care for the sick. History records that the first hospitals were Christian, and is a conspicuous mark upon the landscape of humanity. The early church fathers ordained the monks to practice natural medicine. The monastic medical system represented a transitional period in the history of medicine during which natural, physical medicine and principles of spiritual healing uniquely coexisted.This active, Medical University is the last such organization, carrying on the work of monastic medicine, and we wish to have it preserved for the benefit of future generations as well as serve a lasting memory of a movement that contributed significantly to the Renaissance of today's modern medicine. This heritage included languages, transciption, folk tales, ceremonies, modalities, etc. about traditional medicine, and all the medical and nursing skills that were handed down from generation to generation including surgery and ambulatory care. These traditions and medicine, righteous life, ways and instruction of living, and all the medical and nursing skills that were handed down engendered the fathers of modern medicine in the 18th and 19th centuries. These traditions and practices reflect the spirit and charter of this University. This intangible and cultural heritage is today at great risk, as the natural and medical heritage must be preserved to the world for future posterity. †
The International Conference on Primary Health Care (PHC) in Alma-Ata, Kazakhstan, in 1978, the World Health Organization brought together 134 countries and 67 international organizations. The conference defined and granted international recognition to the concept of primary health care (PHC) as a strategy to reach the goal of Health for All in 2000, as indicated in the Declaration released at the conclusion of the conference.
According to the Declaration of Alma Ata, primary health care, is "essential health care based on practical, scientifically sound and socially acceptable methods and technology made universally accessible to individuals and families in the community through their full participation and at a cost that the community and country can afford to maintain at every stage of their development in the spirit of self-reliance and self-determination."

"Although we have yet to fulfill this commitment, we must not forget or abandon it. More than ever today, the cooperation of governments, international organizations, and health professionals is essential to provide the basic care to narrow the gap between developing and developed nations." (Statement of Senator Edward M. Kennedy, Commemoration of the 25th Anniversary of the Alma-Ata Declaration of 1978)
