We work to help create a world where everyone can be happier and healthier.
Medical Leadership Training
We established and operate the Korea Medical Training Program to provide doctors in developing countries with the opportunity to learn advanced medical technologies in Korea, and to enhance their medical capabilities in their home countries. In Ethiopia, which was the first country selected in the program, we conducted medical training programs for selected doctors for three years.
Myanmar & Cambodia Program
In Southeast Asia, there are many spinal trauma patients who may be able to have improved and near normal lives with proper treatment. In 2013 and 2014 we sponsored pro-bono surgery projects in Myanmar. Then in 2015 we held a spinal symposium in Cambodia to support academic exchanges with medical staff from Korea, the United States, Canada, Vietnam, and Cambodia. Pro-bono surgery was also provided to patients who would not otherwise normally receive treatment. Since the symposium, we have continued to support the community with surgical instrumentation and donated implants. We have helped 30-40 patients every year, with approximately 100 patients having improved quality of life.
Nepal Surgical Instrument Donation
In April 2015 disaster struck Nepal in the form of a 7.8 magnitude earthquake that killed nearly 8,000 people and injuring 17,000 others. We provided approximately $200,000 worth of medical equipment to aid in the surgical treatment of those who have suffered injury from the national disaster.
Mongolia has a high incidence of tuberculosis. Specifically, spinal tuberculosis occurs when tuberculosis bacteria enters through the respiratory tract and infects multiple organs, such as the lungs, and then carries blood to the spine. Our company works with the Korean Tuberculosis Association to help treat patients with this condition. We participated in the spinal tuberculosis eradication project, supporting patients in need of surgery in Korea. In order to improve spinal tuberculosis control in Mongolia, we sponsored a program inviting medical professionals to Korea to contribute the improvement of medical standards.
