It seems that there may be some benefits to be derived from the integration of traditional practitioners into the government health delivery system. The adoption of such a policy may serve to solve several of the major health problems, the most apparent being: the shortage of government medical manpower; the high mortality and morbidity resulting from preventible disease; the lack of adequate medical government care in rural areas; and a general distrust by the people of scientific medical care possibly due to their close adherence to the treatment given by traditional doctors.
