Lack of Regulation Affects Reliability of Commercial Herbal Products in Africa

Fifty years ago, during the “Golden Age” of modern medicine, the use of herbal remedies would have had little chance of being used in Liberia’s primary healthcare system. So strong was the belief in modern medicine’s credo – ‘better living through Chemistry’ – that no responsible person, professional or otherwise, mentioned the word “herbs.”

Today, as the deadly consequences of a modern, artificial civilization are becoming more apparent to both medical professionals and the public at large, natural healing with herbal remedies merits and receives center stage.

LRA Should Expand Tax Horizon

Late last year, Boima Kamara, Minister of Finance and Development Planning (MFDP) admitted on a local radio talk show that the country has plunged into recession. He noted the weakness and undervalue of the Liberian dollar, high prices of basic local commodities and the drop in international trade as upshot of the collapse. However, he was optimistic that policies and strategies being devised by his Ministry and relevant agencies would obviously change the course. I believed him!
