Lagos works to include traditional medicine

The Nigerian state is looking to open centres for practitioners of traditional medicine and include them in hospitals.

    The Lagos State government wants traditional medicine to take its place alongside its modern counterpart.

    Traditional medicine has been practised informally for generations in Africa, and for many, it is the easiest and cheapest option.
