Role of the UFPMTC
Created in 1997, the Union Française des Professionnels de Médecine Traditionnelle Chinoise (UFPMTC) brings together the various players involved in Chinese medicine in France: practitioners, teachers, students, health care users, suppliers, NGOs, etc., under a single umbrella organisation.
In order to give this age-old medicine its rightful place in France and Europe today, the UFPMTC has set itself the following missions:
- To create a meeting place where the interests, ideas and actions of all those involved in TCM in France, including patients, can converge.
- Meet the public's need for information about Traditional Chinese Medicine: its study, practice, field of action, therapeutic methods, practitioners, products, etc.
- Working with the public authorities to ensure that the profession of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner is recognised and regulated.
- To collaborate with professional associations and groups pursuing similar objectives, in order to achieve synergy of action.
The UFPMTC's honorary presidents are the prestigious representatives of this medicine: Mr BAI Yongpo (in China), Mr LU Zhizheng (in China), Mr François MARQUER (deceased) and Mrs MA Fan (in France).
