Plants used for traditional medicines in Africa have been the focus of many chemical, pharmacological and toxicological studies. Based on a better understanding of these traditional plants, small private laboratories and pharmacists have been able to produce enhanced traditional medicines (ETM). These ETM have contributed to health of populations and reduced reliance on imported medicines.
