  1. Enhancing appropriate drug use : the contribution of herbal medicine promotion : a case study in rural Thailand.

    Article - En anglais

    The article presents the results of an exploratory study conducted in Thailand in 1988, comparing the results of two approaches to encourage the use of herbal medicine as a safe and cheap alternative to pharmaceuticals.

    The study included one government programme using a clinic-oriented approach and one non-governmental programme using a community-oriented approach.

    Drug use in response to illness episodes was surveyed among households in two villages covered by each programme and hospital out-patient prescription records were sampled.
