Agency to Document, Standardize Herbal Medicine Practioners in Nigeria

The Nigerian Natural Medicine Development Agency (NNMDA) recently announced it is aiming to standardize the indigenous medicine sector via e-documentation for easy identification of job specialty of practioners to ease the burden for users

Professor Martins Emeje, whilst marking his first year in office as the Director-General (DG) of the agency, disclosed this at its headquarters in Lagos. Speaking on the e-documentation, the DG emphasised the need for proper documentation of Traditional Medical Practitioners (TMP) to help Nigerians make necessary inquiries from the right source.

He stated, “Traditional medicine is peculiar to each environment. This means that we must work together with TMPs for the services and products they provide or render to the community to get them into what we call standardisation. This has to do with documentation. We get them properly documented. We have started.

“We have a huge programme that is starting in Lagos State, where we are going to document every TMP, the services they render, the products they provide, and we get them digitalised.”
