Excerpt
INTRODUCTION A WHO Meeting on the Promotion and Development of Traditional Medicine was held in Geneva from 28 November to 2 December 1977. Dr Ch'en Wen-chieh, Assistant Director-General and Chairman of the Headquarters Working Group on Traditional Medicine, opened the ineeting on behalf of the Director-General. He stated that the consultation had been convened in response to the considerable interest evinced in traditional medicine, which had also been expressed in resolution WHA30.49, adopted by the Thirtieth World Health Assembly in 1977, and in the subsequent requests by Member States for technical collaboration in organizing educational and research activities in this field. The aim of the Meeting was therefore to assemble expert representatives of the major systems of traditional medicine to work together and suggest a plan of action to promote and develop the various aspects of traditional medicine. The specific objectives were to make practical suggestions on policy guidelines for the provision of materials and techniques, collaboration among different systems of health care, health education of the public, manpower development, organization of health services, the future development of traditional medicine and its utilization, particularly in the national health services, and relevant research.
