Mongolian traditional medicine has 2 400 years experience and has a close relationship with Chinese, Indian and Tibetan traditional medicine. The current Mongolian Government considers traditional medicine as an important part of medical service to the population, develops it in association with Western medicine, and is investigating the scientific foundation of traditional medicine to identify its optimal applications.
In 1989, a Traditional Medicine Department was established at the Mongolian National Medical University with training courses in traditional Mongolian medicine. There are seven units producing traditional medicine drugs .
