This is a contributory text on traditional medicines around the worldNearly 20 years, the World Health Organization estimates that “In many countries, 80% or more of the population living in rural areas are cared for by traditional practitioners and midwives’.Since then, he has revised his point of view to a more certain position, now saying that “most people in most developing countries use traditional medicine on a regular basis”.While most people use traditional medicine in developing countries, only a minority have regular access to modern medical services.Countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America are using traditional medicine (TM) to help meet some of their primary health care needs.In Africa, up to 80% of the population uses traditional medicine for primary health care.In industrialised countries, the adaptations of traditional medicine are called “Complementary” or “Alternative” (CAM).More than a third of the population in developing countries lack access to essential medicinesThe provision of safe and effective traditional medicine therapies could become an essential tool to increase access to health care.
