Togo: Traditional medicine may soon be taught in universities

(Togo First) - Traditional medicine should be soon taught in Togo’s public universities. This was disclosed by Dr. Koffi Koudouvo, ethnobotany and ethnopharmacology lecturer at the University of Lomé and traditional medicine expert at the West African Health Organization (WAHO).

The reform could be effective this academic year since related legislation and curricula have already been approved and made available.

Togo it should be emphasized, is not the only sub-Saharan African nation to ensure traditional medicine is taught in schools. Indeed, while Chad, Ghana, and Benin are elaborating strategies to adopt the same reform, Niger already did. Let’s also recall the process in these various countries is backed by the World Health Organization (WHO).
