Transforming the patient experience with telehealth in Europe

Supporting trans-national organisations


AIM logoThe International Association of Mutual benefit societies (AIM), created in 1950, brings together 52 national federations or entities of autonomous health insurance and social protection bodies in 27 countries mainly in Europe. All of our members operate according to the principles of solidarity and not-for-profit orientation.

AIM members mainly provide coverage against sickness to more than 230 million people in the world, either by participating directly in the management of compulsory health insurance, or by providing voluntary health insurance or by delivering directly health care and social services through own facilities.

AIM’s goal is to defend and promote, at international and European level, the social values and basic principles shared by its members: access to health care as a fundamental right, solidarity and non-exclusion as essential means to ensure this access to quality health care for all, irrespective of health status or financial capacity to pay; finally, non-profit orientation as a guiding principle for health insurance based upon the needs of citizens.
