The Traditional Medicine Documentation and Research Centre was established to provide useful information on the practice and development of traditional medicine throughout Nigeria. Its scope covers medica materia and formulations, including herbs, mineral and animal substances, as well as the incantations that serve as mechanisms for codifying and transmitting traditional medical knowledge and application. TRADOC has begun collecting all available oral and written material on the various aspects of traditional medicine country-wide. TRADOC's projects interweave with work at the herbarium and garden of medicinal plants, all of which are ancillary arms of our Institute's programme in Traditional African Medicine and Belief Systems.
