5.7 Collection and exchange of information on herbal medicines

Collection and exchange of information on herbal medicines, including the preparation of monographs on medicinal plants and evaluation of their safety, efficacy and quality, should be encouraged. For collected information, the construction of various databases is desirable to promote information exchange. Utilization of available databases and distribution of information from existing databases should be given high priority.
