Charlottesville and Xining: Arura Medicine of Tibet is a non-profit organization based in Charlottesville, Virginia, USA. We are supported by the Tso‐Ngon Arura Tibetan Medical Group (TATMG) in Tso‐Ngon (Qinghai) Province, P.R. China. Located in Siling (Xining), the capital city of Tso-Ngon Province (traditionally called Amdo), TATMG is the backbone for resources of Arura Medicine of Tibet in Charlottesville. Arura Tibetan Medicine Group is the grandfather of Arura Medicine of Tibet. These organizations are separate entities but bonded in their common purpose.
The goal of TATMG is to utilize the traditional medical system of Tibetan Medicine to provide good quality care and improve people’s health status at the local and national levels. In order to achieve this goal, five major institutes were established to carry out the various tasks.
