Asia-Pacific Herbal Medicine Portal in the works
The Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) is working towards the creation of an Herbal Medicine Portal in the Asia Pacific region to establish a database and network of experts on herbal medicine in the region.
The Philippine Information Agency said the establishment of a portal on scientifically-validated herbal medicine also seeks to improve access to information on herbal medicine in the Asia Pacific and identify areas of research and collaboration.
The Philippines will host the APEC workshop on June 28 to 29 at Hotel Jen Manila.
The workshop is expected to produce action and sustainability plans that will improve reporting and access of scientifically-proven herbal products in the region.
