List of alternative medicines

medicine_10-4-09WILLEMSTAD - There will be an official list of alternative medicines that must be introduced. That list is currently being discussed with the relevant authorities.

This is according to Serving Keli, Director of the Health Department at the Minister of Health, Nature and Environment. Ultimately, the alternative medicines must supplement the traditional ones. According to Keli, knowledge about alternative medicines must be increased: Western physicians are often not yet familiar with this. Keli states that there is enough evidence that some non-Western medicines work more effectively than Western ones.

Minister of Public Health Suzanne Camelia-Römer announced last week during a press conference to introduce alternative medicines to the island. She wants to focus more on wellness and everything that comes with it. Next Friday and Saturday a conference on this subject will be organized in collaboration with the World Health Organization.
