by the Traditional Medical Practitiobers Act, Section 2 Subsection 2 (b), says it will promote the practice of traditional medical practitioners and to foster research and development of such practices.
Mr Chiedza Maponga, chairman of TMPC who is also the director of school of pharmacy at the UZ, yesterday said the course was designed to educate and guide traditional faith healers in their operations.
Mr Maponga said the nature of the programme was also to change misinformation and stigma people had on traditional healers.
He said they intended to train at least 600 traditional healers throughout the country.
The programme structure with eight modules is expected to teach core subjects such as dealing with herbs and also enable them to polish up on their fields.
