The 2017 International Medical was held September 2-3, 2017 in Anaheim, California. This conference highlighted the principles of Sai Ideal Healthcare and the Sathya Sai Global Health Mission. There were over 400 healthcare professionals from all over the world including young adult health professionals. The speakers shared their experiences practicing Ideal Healthcare and their contribution to the Global Health Mission.  These talks were inspiring and exemplified the loving, compassionate, Ideal Healthcare stressed by Sathya Sai Baba.

Sathya Sai Baba’s Ideal Healthcare principles are as follows:

  1. Universal Healthcare: The best care should be available to all, especially the poor.
  2. Free Healthcare: No one should be denied healthcare because of poverty; ideal healthcare should be free of cost.
  3. Loving Healthcare: Healthcare should be delivered with love and compassion.
  4. Comprehensive Healthcare: Medical care should treat the whole patient, body, mind, and spirit.
  5. Preventive Healthcare: It is the duty of the physician to educate patients in healthy living to prevent disease

We will be adding videos of other speakers in the near future. Please send us an email to if you would like to be contacted when updates to the videos are available in our site.
