The IMS is constructed and operates on a mutual and solidarity system. It redistributes the funds that it receives through the contributions in the form of assistance.
The association founded for Missionaries now serves Churches in the emerging countries.
In the service of the Institutes and of their members, the IMS shares its experience in providing cover for health care costs. It can offer assistance to all the poorer Institutes lacking adequate financial resources, exploring with them how their health care risks can be covered.
