4.5 International and national professional associations

Many different international Islamic Organization for Medical professional associations support WHO activities. The Islamic Organization for Medical Sciences (IOMS) (http://www.who.int/ina-ngo/ngo/ngo192.htm), for example, plans to work with WHO on preparation of a manual on the use of medicinal plants. Islamic medicine incorporates modern Western medicine but its fifth criterion of "utilizing all useful resources" means that it is also willing to consider any potentially useful treatment therapies, including TM/CAM therapies, such as treatment with herbal medicines. IOMS established the Centre for Research on Herbal Medicine in Kuwait. A non-profit organization it extends its services to all those who seek treatment with herbal medicines and other products.

Many national professional organizations also work with WHO. National professional organizations include TM practitioners associations in Africa and Asia. For example, there are 22 TM practitioners associations in sub-Saharan Africa. In China, national professional associations exist for those who practise both allopathic medicine and TM, for practitioners of manual therapy, and for specialists in nutrition and health foods. In India, professional associations have long existed for practitioners of ayurvda, unani, sidha and homeopathy.
