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. In Senegal, one group is promoting greater collaboration between practitioners of the two kinds of healing, and has taken measures to get rid of impostors. 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. The institute is set to become a hub for health research, surveillance and training in Africa.

However, in Senegal the government is going the extra mile to improve its innoculation programme for children to reduce the number of fatalities from preventable diseases. Among the challenges is the design of the vaccination coolers which, although specifically made for the task, are not suitable for travel accross the irregular terrain, according to some nurses. Al Jazeera's Nicolas Haque reports from Nioro, Senegal.
