Ghana Seeks to Praise Legitimate Herbal Healers and Differentiate from Opportunistic Quacks

Professor F. T. Sai, the Presidential Advisor on Reproductive Health, HIV/AIDS, in Ghana, announced he is open to accepting and funding legitimate research organizations who provide proof of their substantial research into the effective use of evidence-based herbal medicines to fight the HIV/AIDS scourge. He aims to distinguish true healers with solid research from those opportunistic healers selling snake-oils to the sick and desperate. The Ghana AIDS Commission (GAC) wants to bring Traditional Herbal Practitioners and modern medicine together into a Complementary arsenal to battle the scourge of HIV/AIDS.
