There is need to for traditional medicine practitioners to develop a curriculum that will help to train more people come on board.

These were the School of Pharmacy Acting Dean Dr. Kennedy Abuga’s opening remarks during the 1st University of Nairobi and Kenyatta National Hospital Complimentary and Alternative Medicines Symposium held on Thursday 26th May, 2016 at LT III.

Dr. Abuga noted that there is need to fast track documentation of herbal, alternative and complementary medicine in the management of diseases.

He challenged the practitioners to ensure that they carry out clinical trials on their products to have them accepted in the market, just like the imported products.

“Imported products are quality assured while local ones are not, this therefore poses a big challenge to local traditional medicine practitioners,” Dr. Abuga said.

The symposium attracted over 150 participants and brought together doctors, pharmacists, herbalists, nurses, professors and students from different organizations.
