[Extract] Bhutanese Traditional Medicine (gso-ba-rig-pa) occupies a significant place for its role both for the healthcare as well as its cultural importance. Therefore, it is important to continuously preserve, improve, validate and promote it through marriage of scientific technologies with ancient knowledge and wisdom.

In this line, the Institute of Traditional Medicine Services (ITMS) has come up with a number of research and development initiatives, one of which is the development of Monograph on Medicinal Plants of Bhutan.

The first volume of Monograph which was developed in 2006 has significantly served in improving the quality of Bhutanese traditional medicines as well as generated income through its sale. The Monograph also disseminated information on Bhutanese medicinal plants both within and outside Bhutan.
