The Association Internationale de la Mutualité (AIM) is a grouping of autonomous health insurance and social protection bodies operating according to the principles of solidarity and non-profit-making orientation.
Health and social mutual societies differ very much but share all common values. Through history, they adapted to the national systems they are working in. In general, health and social mutuals can be defined by some common characteristics. The first is that they all have the funding and/or provision of healthcare and social services as their principal activity. Secondly, they are all autonomous and have some form of internal member control. As health and social mutuals have no shareholders, they are not oriented to make profits but to serve members interests.
