Since the proposal to build the VHL Traditional Medicine and Complementary Therapies (TM&C VHL) was presented in Nicaragua, in the beginning of 2017, during the meeting “Advancing towards Universal Health: contributions of Traditional and Complementary Medicine”, many important steps have been taken to expand collaboration and development of the TM&C VHL.
