The value of traditional medicine for achieving the MDGs

Posted on Updated on


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.
