The Asian Medical Foundation (AMF) was established on 29 April 2003 by a group of doctors, nurses and staff at Raffles Medical Group. Its aim is to help needy patients and groups requiring medical treatment. It also provides funding for community projects to help the poor and the underprivileged.
We look after the medical and healthcare needs of the poor and under-privileged, particularly those requiring urgent medical treatment. We provide medical and healthcare-related programmes, including healthcare-related training and education. We work with like-minded government agencies, charities, corporations, and NGOs on community projects catered to the less fortunate.
We extend assistance based on our core competence - doing medical and healthcare related services and programmes, as well as conduct healthcare-related training and education.
Our Mission and Objective
- To provide financial assistance to impoverished patients in need of medical or health care.
- To promote or organize programmes for the furtherance of continued medical and health education and training for doctors and other healthcare providers.
- To fund research and development to improve diagnostics, therapeutic and prophylactic procedures and the understanding of the aetiology and pathogenesis of diseases
