Herbal Medicine in Africa-Distribution, Standardization and Prospects
A. Falodun

Abstract:
Plants have always been a component of mankind’s healthcare system. This is either directly or indirectly. Directly, the plant parts like leaves, fruits, stem bark and roots or even the whole plant are themselves used in the treatment of illnesses. The use of herbal medicines in Africa has greatly elevated and enhanced the primary health care system but the standardization and quantification/dosing of the herbal medicines in the treatment of disease and infections has left much to be desired.
