Friday is the 10th African Traditional Medicine Day. It is a day commemorated globally by the WHO (World Health Organisation) & no it's not a public holiday!!
It's 10 years on and yet there is still no significant progress that has been made in South Africa when it comes to integrating traditional medicine into the healthcare of the country.
Unfortunately this is still one area where the dominant culture is treated like a marginal culture! I struggle to understand how this is, but, it is what it is! Mine ( and I hope yours as well as you read this) is to make it what we want it to be. A South Africa where I am assured of quality care irrespective of which mode of healthcare I choose!
Philani! Remember your strength & own it! MAD-G
