Liberia has official legislative/regulatory texts governing the practice of traditional medicine. There is a registry of traditional health practitioners and there are local and national councils for traditional medicine. Local officials are allowed to authorize the practice of traditional medicine in their administrative and/or health subdivisions, and some traditional medicine practitioners are involved in Liberia's primary health care programme. However, Liberia does not have licensing procedures for traditional health practitioners or procedures for the official approval of traditional medical practices and remedies (6).
Education and training
Liberia has a training programme in traditional medicine for health workers (6).
