Date: 2nd June 2014


Première Urgence-Aide Médicale Internationale (PU-AMI) is an international non-governmental organization whose mandate is to bring a comprehensive response to the essential needs of populations suffering from humanitarian crises in emergencies until autonomy and dignity can be obtained.

Operational in 16 countries in Africa, Asia, the Middle East, the Caucasus and the Caribbean, PU-AMI works in the areas of food security, health, nutrition, rehabilitation of infrastructure, water and sanitation and economic recovery. PU-AMI is the result of the merger between two NGO’s: Première Urgence and Aide MédicaleInternationale in 2011.

PU-AMI in Thailand

PU-AMI has been working with the Burmese population since 1984, when they provided primary healthcare and medical training from their base in Manerplaw, Burma.

The WHO has defined health as a state of complete physical, mental, and social well being, not merely an absence of disease or infirmity. In accordance with this definition, PU-AMI’s medical programs integrate physical, as well as mental and social components in order to contribute to a state of improved well being of individuals, as well as the community as a whole. Its mandate is to contribute to autonomy, in which light PU-AMI invests and works toward durable solutions and community empowerment by building capacity and strengthening self-reliance wherever possible.

-clinical services and disease surveillance/control in the 3 camps
