The Biodiversity and Community Health (BaCH) Initiative’s partner the United Nations University Institute for the Advanced Study of Sustainability (UNU-IAS) through its Biodiplomacy Initiative pioneered a programme investigating modalities to integrate traditional medical knowledge into the public health systems of developing countries almost a decade ago back in 2004. Ever since UNU-IAS has been synergising leading expert’s experience and expertise to explore ways on how to integrate traditional medicine in public health to address the lack of health care in a mutually respectful, culturally sensitive way.
