Medical Services Activities
Some KM doctors render the medical services without charge to
those in the lower income brackets, the aged and infirm of the
country. Others organized Korean Medicine Service Team
Abroad(KOMSTA) in 1993 have been in full blast in sending over 117
medical service teams to more than 27 countries, as of 2012,
establishing Korean Medicine hospitals, where they have left good
impression of KM on the peoples of the world through the
humanitarian activities. Besides the short-term services, Korean
Medicine doctors named ‘International cooperation doctor’are
dispatched to foreign countries by the government and take medical
treatment for the term of two years in the hospital designated by the
country concerned. This project is a part of the international
cooperation of the Korea International Cooperation Agency(KOICA).

Public Health Project of Korean Medicine
The project is to enhance health of the residents of the community by
providing them with medical care and health improving programs of
Korean Medicine at the public health center. It is designed to meet the
increased demand for the KM due to the growing number of patients
of chronic and intractable diseases and the ageing of the population.
Some KM doctors were committed to the public health center in
farming and fishing area in 1998 and the enforced area was
extended to 206 public health centers in 2011. The government
financially and administratively support the project.
