Strategy implementation

Maximizing the potential that TM/CAM offers for improving health status world-wide is a daunting task, covering a diverse range of activities and demanding many types of expertise. Fortunately, WHO has established a global TM/CAM network, members of which include national health authorities, experts of WHO Collaborating Centres and research institutes, as well as other UN agencies and nongovernmental organizations working on TM/CAM issues, and whose assistance WHO can call upon. Many organizations have contributed to development of the WHO Traditional Medicine Strategy 2002 - 2005, and many of them have agreed to be our partners in its implementation.

Use of critical indicators will facilitate monitoring of country progress under each of the strategy objectives.
