WHO to Include Complementary Medicine

The World Health Organization (WHO) wants to include traditional and complementary medicine to a greater extent.

According to the International Federation of Anthroposophic Medical Associations (IVAA), this information emerged from a draft document adopted by the WHO Executive Board in Geneva on February 7th. The undertaking stems from an initiative of Bangladesh, China, Eswatini (formerly Swaziland), India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Nicaragua, South Korea, Singapore, South Africa, Thailand, and Turkey. Knowledge Ecology International, one of TCIH’s supporting organizations, stressed in its statement to the Executive Council, that the new strategy should prioritize integration, research, rules for doctors and rules regarding products, and contribute to universal health coverage. The TCIH Declaration (People’s Declaration for Traditional, Complementary and Integrative Healthcare) is an international network of 270 organizations of professionals, patients, and research institutes of which IVAA is a member.
