Principales áreas de trabajo relacionadas con la Convención:
1. WFCMS actively takes part in the research work for the protection of TCM culture. For instance, WFCMS has been participating in a project named Research on the Academic Thinking and Medical Experience of Eminent TCM Senior Doctors for inheritance, which documents and preserves clinical experience of more than 200 TCM doctors; a bunch of bilingual basic nomenclatures of TCM, including Chinese-English, Chinese-French, Chinese-Spanish and Chinese-Portuguese, have been published (or are to be published) containing more than 6000 terms. Part of them use Chinese pinyin as their terms, which better facilitates the preservation of TCM culture and further promotes its continuance and development. Since 2004, the annually held World Congress of Chinese Medicine is an influential event of WFCMS. TCM practitioners and experts who show great interests in TCM culture gather together to exchange ideas on inheriting and developing effective therapies, preserving tratidional medicine theories such as acupunture theory, and human-nature harmony theory etc, to name a few.
2. We have set up the specialty committees that are related to the preservation of TCM culture including the Specialty committee of Acupotomology, the Specialty Committee of TCM Pharmaceutics, the Specialty Committee of Chinese Characteristic Diagnosis and Treatment and Specialty Committee of Pulse Manifestation. The establishment of those specialty committees provides platforms for professionals in relevant fields to safeguard, and improve TCM culture. Members of the special committees are recruited with strict selection criteria covering their degree, professional title, and clinical experience etc. Therefore, WFCMS's capability to inherit and preserve TCM culture is enhanced.
3. Member societies of WFCMS are actively involved in preservation and transmission of TCM culture. Currently, there are 201 WFCMS member societies from 58 countries and regions. They are dedicated to providing TCM health services to the public and spreading TCM culture to people all around the world. For instance, the documentary named "Traditional Chinese Medecine across the World" sponsored by WFCMS and filmed by China Central Television International, gained great supports from the member societies of WFCMS all over the world, which made it a successful program.
The objectives of WFCMS are to promote the exchange and cooperation among the Chinese Medicine societies as well as the collaboration between Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and other medicines worldwide, to strengthen international academic exchanges of TCM, to improve the professional level of TCM personnel, to inherit and develop TCM, to accelerate the process of its modernization and globalization, and to push it forward into the mainstream of medical and health care systems in various countries so as to make greater contribution to the health of mankind.
In the course of the study of the Bilingual (including Chinese-English, Chinese-French, Chinese-Spanish and chinese-Portugese) basic nomenclature of TCM, WFCMS collaborates with the experts from more than 100 NGOs in more than 90 countries to accomplish the study. Moreover, it annually collaborates with NGOs from different countries or regions to hold world conference of TCM in different part of the world. It also cooperates with NGOs to undertake international training workshops and examination in the field of TCM, and to publish multilingual journal of World Chinese Medicine.
