Impacts of Regulatory Mechanisms on Trado-Medical Practice in Nigeria

Eric A. Okojie


A number of regulatory mechanisms were introduced to remedy problems such as the increased incidents of quacks and improperly trained trado medical practitioners, lack of complete trust by the public in accessing trado medical health care system, mysterious and unhygienic conditions under which the drugs were being produced which were associated with the trado-medical health care system due to lack of regulatory mechanisms. This paper argued that the regulatory mechanisms have positively altered the way trado-medical practice is being operated in Nigeria whereby it has now adopted the standards and procedures synonymous with orthodox medical practice which in turn has made it more user friendly, organized, more access to available information for use by members of the public, detailed data, income generation and an effective disciplinary mechanism for erring members.Despite these positive impacts however, more is still needed to be done in the area of protecting the constitutional rights of practitioners while creating a single body to protect the interest of its members and amending the laws to ensure that practitioners mandatorily update their knowledge in line with international best practices.
