WE believe that person is a unique being of worth and dignity, holistic in nature, sharing interactive biophysical , cognitive, developmental and spiritual dimensions that is common to all human beings . We believe that individuals are active partners in their own health care.

WE believe that the health is a state of complete physical, mental, social and spiritual well being and not merely the absence of diseases and infirmity and that health encompasses states of wellness or integrity.
