Traditional medicine was once thought of as sorcery or quackery. But the craft is slowly gaining the respect of conventional medical practitioners as its methods and medicines are studied more fully.

VOA's Scott Bobb has this report from Dakar.
Senegal has officially launched the new Institute for Health Research, Epidemiological Surveillance and Training. Presided over by President Macky Sall, the launch brought together health professionals and researchers from all over the world. The Institute is the brainchild of Senegalese researcher Souleymane Mboup -- one of the first scientists to discover HIV-2, a form of the HI virus.
