In the video message of Deputy Minister for Health Dr Aye Tun, he said that traditional medicine practitioners play a key role in healthcare services in addition to herbal plants and traditional methods of treatment in rural areas of developing countries. Today, the use of traditional medicines is increasing and governments support the development of traditional medicine.
It is also necessary to conserve the endangered biodiversity and grow medicinal plants, which are facing extinction risk, systematically.
