A just concluded conference in Bali sought to boost ties and cooperation between the world’s medical practitioners concerned with promoting Christian ethics and values in health care.

The 15th Conference of the Asian Federation of Catholic Medical Associations (AFCMA) was headquartered at the Sanur Paradise Hotel November 18-21, 2012 in Denpasar, Bali and welcomed nearly 400 participants attending from Asian and Europe nations.

Included among those in attendance were Monsignor Jean-Marie Mate Musivi Mupendawatu, secretary of the Pontifical Council for Pastoral Assistance to Health Care Workers; Monsignor Martinus Situmorang, president of the Catholic Bishops' Conference of Indonesia (KWI); and Monsignor Antonio Guido Filippazzi, Apostolic Nuncio.

Among the topics discussed were the implementation of Christian values and ethics in the medical profession, particulrly as it applies to reproductive sex and the use of prophylactics to prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS.

Well represented at the conference were Roman Catholic Asian doctors with a strong sampling of doctors from Indonesia’s capital of Jakarta where an estimated  200 Catholic medical practitioners practice.

In Jakarta, the Catholic Church operates clinics operating in large churches with free care extended parishioners unable to pay.

The conference concluded with the establishment of a three-part plan to provide guidance to Catholic doctors in the exercise of their profession. The plan includes a strong commitment to defend human life from conception to natural death; adherence to the Catholic Church's doctrine and moral values especially in the area of medical experimentation; and special care for the vulnerable.

Bali Discovery Events provided professional conference organizing services to the AFCMA Conference.
