Legal status of traditional and complementary medicine

National policies are the basis for defining the role of traditional and complementary/alternative medicine in national health care programmes ensuring that the necessary regulatory and legal mechanisms are created for promoting and maintaining good practice: assuring authenticity, safety and efficacy of traditional and complementary therapies: and providing equitable access to health care resources and information about those resources.

National recognition and regulation of traditional and complementary medicine varies considerably from one country to another. The present worldwide review of the legal status of traditional and complementary medicine covers data from 123 countries and is intended to facilitate the development of legal frameworks and sharing of experience between countries. This information will be beneficial to policy makers, researchers, universities, the public, insurance companies and the pharmaceutical industry.
