Member of Parliament for Nsawam-Adoagyiri, Frank Annoh-Dompreh has charged the government to focus on supporting local herbal practitioners to find a cure for the novel coronavirus pandemic.

According to him, developing an effective local treatment; be it drugs or other treatment methods, can alleviate the conditions of sick persons and restore their health.

He believes Ghana is capable of finding a traditional cure for the virus if all stakeholders come on board to support manufacturers of herbal drugs and called on the government to empower local producers of both traditional and modern medicine to work together in that regard.

The NPP legislator said, “It is important to assess policies that will bring together our traditional herbal medicine experts and various stakeholder institutions like the Ministry of Health and the Food and Drugs Authority among others, to play a role in developing and enhancing local treatment methods backed by scientific evidence.”

Citing the Madagascar COVID-19 drug as an example, Mr. Annoh-Dompreh said Ghana can follow suit if we support our local treatment practices with confidence in their ability to produce results.

He said, “This is also an opportunity to encourage our traditional medicine experts to work together with doctors and scientists in medicine for the purpose of providing more efficient treatment methods that will upsurge recoveries even further. In effect, we will eventually lighten the burden on healthcare services so that more efforts can be focused on securing an approved vaccine in the shortest possible time.”
