The project to integrate traditional medicine into the national healthcare system is being piloted in Fasa county in Fars Province, said deputy minister of health and medical education Mahmoud Khodadoost. “Traditional medicine is in no way contradictory with contemporary medicine and can help boost community health if practitioners, nurses, and social workers are trained in both fields equally,” he was quoted by ILNA as saying. Traditional medicine is institutionalized among Iranians, Khodadoost said adding that “self-care is basic human nature and Islamic culture endorses it.”
