About this book

The use and trade of medicinal plants in Southern Africa has been recognised as providing important primary health care benefits and livelihood opportunities, and being culturally significant. This industry and its current roleplayers are, however, threatened by a number of factors, including unsustainable and declining raw material supplies, unsupportive legislative frameworks, poor organisation, limited capacity, and new entrants into the industry with commercial interests.
