WITH a key-note address from the Vice President Dr Sai Mauk Kham, the 16th Myanmar Traditional Medicine Practitioners’ Conference was opened in Nay Pyi Taw yesterday.
Speaking on the occasion, he called on traditional medicine practitioners to conduct research on safety, quality and potency of the country’s indigenous medicines and to cooperate with pharmacologists, foresters, agriculturalists and medical experts to conduct scientific research.
The vice president also encouraged practitioners across the country to expose and preserve the potent herbs grown in Myanmar’s jungle and to reproduce, cultivate and produce them.
Vice President Dr Sai Mauk Kham also urged them to begin records of therapy, saying that it is a must for all the traditional medicine practitioners.
The pros and cons of their therapies are to be put on record and these records need to be systematically compiled so as to disclose the findings with firm evidences, he added.
Up to December 2015, three 100-bed hospitals, nine 50-bed hospitals, four 25-bed hospitals and four 16-bed hospitals were built, 50 District Traditional Medicine Department Offices opened and 210 Township Traditional Medicine Centres were established in regions and states.
At the conference, the indigenous medicine practitioners submitted five proposals and held discussions.
