Since 1982, with the help of biotech vaccines and drugs ,millions of people have been helped. But how has it changed our lives? Agricultural biotechnology uses further techniques to make production much easier and produce best quality product over the last years including plant breeding and the management of plant enemies (Sheldon Krimsky, Roger Paul Wrubel, Agricultural Biotechnology and the Environment 1996). One best example is the genetically modified soya beans which is not affected by the use of herbicides.
From the past centuries the practice of traditional medicines has been passed on to generations without a parallel development of international standards and appropriate methods for evaluation. In the light of the current strict pharmaceutical era, scientific research is needed to provide proper evidence of its safety and efficacy. Voluminous expansion in the use of traditional medicine has eventually raised the safety, efficacy and quality concerns for both health authorities and the public. Traditional medicine with proven quality, safety and efficacy will eventually contribute to the goal of ensuring health care assess to whole population. Many countries now recognize the need to develop a cohesive and integrative approach to access traditional and complementary medicine in a trustworthy and cost effective manner
Aloe Vera is a plant that is well-known for its considerably effective medicinal properties. Moreover, The Aloe Vera plant is a natural source of health for human beings. According to the chemistry of this plant, more than 200 different biologically active substances exist and are being used all over the world. The leaf of the Aloe plant contains 75 compounds which have a variety of healing properties (Naik et al., 4). Although this plant has many healing properties, its level of growth has not been seen to increase across the world, since not everyone has adopted its property and usage.
Traditional medicine consists of all the medical knowledge systems which can be found in different societies and developed over generations before the era of modern medicine. The World Health Organization (WHO) defines traditional medicine as "the sum total of the knowledge, skills, and practices based on the theories, beliefs, and experiences indigenous to different cultures, whether explicable or not, used in the maintenance of health as well as in the prevention, diagnosis, improvement or treatment of physical and mental illness." Traditional medicine in East treats not only the physical body but also it’s surrounding in terms of energy fields, emotional sphere and spirit. Eastern approach sees the underlying reason of the disease in the misbalance of energy within the person, unlike the Western, modern, medicine which is concentrating on the physical aspects and tries to “fix” the body. One of the most exceptional sides of traditional medicine is its intention to imply the self-healing mechanisms pledged in our body by
Saudi Arabia’s healthcare service plan contains two tiers that satisfy all the citizens’ demands and needs from defensive care through highly advanced surgery. The first tier contains a network of main healthcare clinics and centers within the country that offers emergency, prenatal, preventive and basic services. Clinics provide distant rural places with services such as basic medical services and vaccination. These clinics and centers have significantly improved health standards by providing healthcare services to the public. They were the reason in reducing the country’s infant mortality rate from 68 per 1,000 live births in 1980, to 18 per 1,000 live

WHO notes that of 119 plant-derived pharmaceutical medicines, about 74 percent are used in modern medicine in ways that correlated directly with their traditional uses as plant medicines by native cultures (Ivan A. Ross, 2003). The plant kingdom still holds many species of plants containing substances of medicinal value which have yet to be discovered and large numbers of plants are constantly being screened for their pharmacological value in addition to the already exploited plants. As a result of modern isolation techniques and pharmacological screening procedures, new plant drugs usually find their way on to modern medicine (C. Wermuth
Some of the authors claim that Medical Pluralism implies the choice of the people, but I would like to view medical pluralism as not the choice of the patients rather the lack of resources and practitioners in the biomedicine. After 1960s Health has become one of the important concerns all over the world. One of the important mottos of the Alma ata conference which was conducted in 1978 was ‘Health for all by 2000’. Thus health became one of the major socio economic issue and being treated as the basic human right. But there were limited resources in terms of availability and accessibility

In this paper, the researcher will import the pharmaceutical products for both prescription drugs and over the counter (OTC) drugs to Myanmar. People in Myanmar face a shortage of essential goods such as medicines and medical equipment. Anymore, spending on medical needs is low and access to medical care is difficult in rural areas. So, the local demand for medicines and health supplements is mainly supported by imports. 3.
