Tomas Mecheba Fernandez held this meeting to celebrate the African Day of Traditional Medicine, and review some aspects of the work of those who practice it.
The meeting was held in the conference room of the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare. Minister Mecheba Fernandez was assisted by the National Director of Traditional Medicine, Alberto Eximi and the Director General, Gregorio Gori. This was the first contact between the head of the Ministry and the practitioners of traditional medicine. The Minister took advantage of the moment to congratulate them on the African Day of Traditional Medicine.
Mecheba Fernandez spoke of traditional medicine as part of our culture, about the existence of the law that regulates its operation, about the functions that can be carried out by practitioners of traditional medicine and those that are not within its competence. The Minister also reminded the practitioners of traditional medicine that, in the cases in which their skills are extrapolated, they must direct the patients to recognized health centers
