The Division of Traditional Medicine, a collaborating centre of WHO and recognized by the Organization of African Unity, has started the industrial exploitation of medicinal plants, carrying out activities such as: a survey of practitioners; identification of natural areas of growth of medicinal plants in Mali; botanical, chemical and pharmacological studies; development of improved traditional medicines; improvement of quality control; and training in traditional medicine. Since 1974, associations of traditional therapists have been established [9].
