International Medicare Network for the Underprivileged and Poor (IMNUP)
While being busy remodelling the international structure of the Academy itself, we as the WAMS have currently been in the restless process of establishing the International Medicare Network for the Underprivileged and Poor (IMNUP), an unprecedented new global healthcare system that provides free treatment and healthcare services for the World's poor-underprivileged patients of priority/high-priority.
Today, around 1.2 billion people in the world live in extreme poverty. More than 1.1 billion of them are ill, more than half of them seriously; millions of them terminally ill, millions of them have no access to proper medical treatment and millions of them stand no chance of having any medical treatment or care at all.
With the help and support of my respectable colleagues and friends around the world, I personally have so far had the gratification and honor of providing medical treatment and care for dozens of seriously ill underprivileged high-priority patients, from Africa to India, and from Bolivia to Cambodia. We have been lucky enough to be able to have some of them properly treated in their own countries and blessed enough to have some of them admitted to the most sophisticated western/European hospitals and clinics which took care of them with praiseworthy management and success.
If we, however, continue to do this only individually, and therefore practically not for more than a few dozen patients a year, our mission can not possibly live up to our weighty cause. This is the basic reason for the establishment of this medical network platform for the World's poor, underprivileged patients who have no access to proper medical care or any medical care at all.
In this global work of true dedication, which will be financed by the Academy through major global sponsors and revenue-generating global television programs, our colleagues, Academy members, fellows and delegates, and any other people involved in healthcare professionally or otherwise are welcomed to take part directly or indirectly giving it their time and/or expertise in one way or another.
All the best,
THE WORLD ACADEMY OF MEDICAL SCIENCES
