阿拉木圖宣言（Alma Ata Declaration）強調「基於實際的、科學合理以及社會可接受的方法和技術上，社會個人和家庭能普遍使用，並在每個發展階段的花費又是公眾和國家都能承受的，以自力更生為精神原則的必要和基本的衛生保健」。
Alma Ata declaration emphasizes primary health care which has been described as "Essential health care based on practical, scientifically sound and socially acceptable methods and technology, made universally accessible to individuals and families of the community through their full participation and at a cost that a community and a country can afford to maintain at every stage of their development, in the spirit of self reliance and self determination. "
Primary health care practice is based on the special training and scientific orientation provided to health care workers including physicians, nurses, midwives, auxiliary and community workers and traditional medical practitioners.
Therefore "The Open International University" under the WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION guidelines have established procedures and regulations outlining the Code of Ethics that healers are expected to allow, consequent to their training and certification by "The Open International University".
However, practitioners are governed by legislation and regulations which are appropriate to their country in which they hold registration, in addition to the Code of Ethics.
