Mali: revisiting traditional medicine

Timbuktu Chronicles: Revisiting traditional medicine;
“In the capital Bamako there is a laboratory where researchers spend their working days studying the medicinal effects of plants brought in from around the country – selected on the advice of traditional healers. The laboratory has been established by the Malian government which is convinced that traditional medicine is a crucial public health investment….the researchers systematize herbs and information, they extract biologically active components, analyze and characterize them.”
