Health Ministry to develop old-fashioned medicine and use Thai herbs


BANGKOK,– Public Health Minister Piyasakon Sakolsattayatorn said old-fashioned medicine is growing more popular worldwide as it helps solve health problems which modern drugs cannot. 

The Ministry of Public Health is accelerating the development of the old-fashioned medicine as an alternative for the public to make Thailand an international health center and to help stabilize the country’s economy.

The agency is yet to make a national master plan for the development of Thai herbs to include Thai old-fashioned medicine as part of a health care system associated with the modern medicine.
