EXPLORING TRADITIONAL MEDICINE

 

Fifteen experts from 15 different countries joined with nine experts from China in Beijing on 22-24 September 2015 to explore the topic of traditional medicine. The symposium, hosted by IAMP, the Chinese Academy of Engineering (CAE) and the China Academy of Chinese Medical Sciences (CACMS) was designed to share experiences on how traditional knowledge and practices are being explored, implemented and integrated with allopathic or ‘Western medicine’ in the participating countries.
