Since the World Health Organization officially promoted traditional medicine in developing countries in 1918, there have been increasing interests among developing countries in integrating traditional medicine into a national health care system.
Most of these policies, however, tend to be the policy of coexistence instead of integration.
This paper focuses on the rationale, strategies, and process of integrating traditional medicine into a modern health care system by using the experience of Chinese medicine in Taiwan as an example.
After briefly describing the changing roles of Chinese medicine in Taiwan, the author critically reviews the government policies and regulations on Chinese medicine.
