In 1992, IMANA mandated the formation of IIIM at a council meeting of its executives in Orlando, Florida. IIIM was formed to collect, collate, catalogue, annotate, research and disseminate information about the History of Islamic Medicine. Islamic Medicine was the medicine that developed and was practiced during the Islamic period of civilization. IIIM also researches and publicizes the multitudinous contributions that Islamic Medicine made to the development of Modern Medicine. These are pioneering efforts by Dr. Husain Nagamia, Chairman of IIIM, who organizes resources to educate all about the rich past of Islamic Medical civilization and heritage.
