health care person
Being a Member is the will to unite with equals, who, out of humanism and empathy, coincide in helping those who need it most, freely, voluntarily and in the time available. Never out of obligation, but with the objective of improving health, serving communities, training, or taking action after a disaster. As a Member, you learn the “Meaning of providing Help to those who did not have, or there is no one, to help them today”, whatever help you can give them, it will always be well received.
Being a Member of ASFLAT® or AWBIS®-ASFI® makes you part of a group of people, from multidisciplinary areas, from all over the world, who provide time and skills, for the same purpose. “The Health of people with Ancestral and Natural Medicines”. By providing training, which will help them stay healthy, then they themselves can provide assistance in their communities for free, or with a voluntary donation, applying what they have learned in our training. Following this, one of the Organization’s Objectives: “Create a Global Sustainable Help Network.”
This Group of people will be part of you, and your life, if you allow it. It is not necessary to be a Professional. You can also learn! It is never too late, and there are no limits.
The limit is up to you. In ASFLAT® and ASFI® 30% of Volunteer Members are not Health Professionals. And you know what? It is these People, they are the ones who most support us in Attention and Campaigns, without them we would be lost. Because everything would depend on the health personnel who attend, if there were no collaborating people who support us in what we need. Don’t limit yourself. Help those who need it most. Join today, and be part of our international family.
ASFLAT® LATIN AMERICA AND CARIBBEAN IN THE TIME
Since 1973, “ASFLAT®” has been established as an extension of ASFI®-AWBIS® but which would be in charge of “Unifying” Latinos and Caribbean people to expand Oriental Medicine such as Acupuncture and Naturopathy, throughout the territory. For what it was founded. It is, was and will be an NGO, totally inclusive. Dedicated to promoting the Standardization of TCM in all countries. Providing care and help through Acupuncture, Naturopathy and Natural Medicines, worldwide. With each and every one of the Members, we continue to fight, in this new stage, carrying out various actions, such as training, normal and humanitarian campaigns, with more Members, with more hands, with more strategic alliances, with great force. Doing what our slogan tells us: The Point is… to Help!
WHAT MAKES US BE
STRONGER TO FOLLOW
From Normative Changes, to achieve Unification, the New and Renewed, World Directions, all this, it took us a long time, which was worth it. Integration was achieved, although it was not without its drawbacks. Finally, in 2019, the incorporation into a single Unified Directors Board was unanimously achieved. That governs, internationally.
Today, we have new and improved Guidelines, Regulations, Standards and greater flexibility to enter. Abbreviated rules, for Members, and simple and free access. An important area such as ICSAN® was added. A better and controlled Regulation that was outdated, and with some deficiencies, in legal updates, being externally advised.
HELPING IS VITAL IN
One pride of ASFLAT® and ASFI®-AWBIS® is having participated in multiple post-disasters, where logistics was, and is essential, to get to the place, (whenever possible).
We use all the knowledge about Traditional Medicines, and every Hand that was of Help, in Trauma, Pain, Containment, and Help in General, for the various scenarios.
We Coordinate with the Offices, with the Members, Guides and Directors, to follow the route outlined, for whatever is necessary, and that is within our reach. Many times, alone, others with NGO’s friends. We have participated in multiple situations. But not for everything we wish we could do. But… we continue forward, with Strength, Patience, Friendships, Fellowship, and also, with encounters and disagreements.
Become a Member and say with Pride:
I AM A MEMBER OF ASFLAT® ACUPUNCTORS WITHOUT BORDERS LATIN AMERICA AND THE CARIBBEAN

We promote normal, diverse and different campaigns in Latin American countries. Many of these activities are “Scheduled”, in places where we detect, or know that we will be of help. Other more complex campaigns, the Humanitarian ones, must be well coordinated, especially after some natural, accidental or provoked disaster. Where Anguish, Loss, Stress and Trauma are present, it is there, where we can be of great use. Join us, we are waiting for you!

NEW AGREEMENTS WITH TCM SCHOOLS OF ALL CLASSES AND FROM ALL COUNTRIES
The Agreements, National or International with Educational Centers, are related to their size, capacity, subjects and number of careers (related to ASFLAT®). In Special Agreements, the validity that it has in your country will influence.
Agreements with Small Educational Centers, or those that are currently of “Unofficial” or “Unregulated” Education, are as viable to carry out Agreements, as those Educational Schools that have “Official” validity. The type of Agreement will change, depending on the type of Establishment.
It should be borne in mind that the Guidelines and Regulations of the Organization only admit an Agreement with the “Primary Entity” not with its Subsidiaries, which it may have. Each Subsidiary must have its own Agreement. But you can make as many Agreements, as necessary.
The International Council for Safe Acupuncture ICSA® was born in 1999, began a transition in 2018, and changed in 2019. Today called ICSAN® International Council for Safety in Acupuncture & Naturopathy, in Spanish, “Concilio Internacional para la Seguridad en Acupuntura y Naturopatía”. It is constituted as a Special Area. Supervised by ASFI®-AWBIS®, for Acupuncturists and by ASFWHO® for Naturopaths.
It has three Levels of Professional Certification, which Registered Members can Access. This Certification is what will guarantee that you are a Professional, who practices under International Guidelines and Regulations on “Safety in Acupuncture and Naturopathy”, in its different modalities. The Certificate (and in some countries license) indicates that you are a “Safe International Member in Acupuncture, Naturopathy or both”

This will translate into: saving resources. A single World Directors Board, a Single Regulation and Guidelines, and no longer any more Differences Between the Countries, in their Members, or the Differences that existed Between the Members, of each Continent.
