This volume summarizes recent writings about AIDS and provides a framework for thinking about the eventual consequences of this world-wide epidemic.

WHO estimates that 60% of the people in sub-Saharan Africa use traditional medicine to alleviate their spiritual, psycho- social and physical problems (WHO, 2001). Statistics have shown that in sub-Saharan Africa, it is estimated that one western-trained physician treats about 40,000 patients while one traditional healer treats about 400 (Hoggle, 1990;Mbereko and Mahlatini, 2014). A key part of the studies are the ethnobotanical surveys of medicinal plants administered by traditional medical practitioners (TMP's) and the taxonomic identification of plant species by taxonomists with the Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives. Chemical screening and extraction of possible active constituents is also conducted with TMPs as an integral part of the laboratory team.
