The World Health Organization (WHO) defines Indigenous (Traditional) medicine is defined as “the sum total of knowledge, skills and practices based on the theories, beliefs and experiences indigenous to different cultures that are used to maintain health, as well as to prevent, diagnose, improve or treat physical and mental illnesses". The World Health Organization (WHO) welcomes innovations around the world including repurposing drugs, traditional medicines and developing new therapies in the search for potential treatments for COVID-19.

Indigenous medicine comprises medical aspects of traditional knowledge that developed over generations within various societies before the era of modern medicine. In some Asian and African countries, up to 80% of the population depends on traditional medicine for their primary health care needs. Use of plants as a source of medicine has been an ancient practice and is an important component of the Indigenous health care system which includes traditional African, Ayurveda, Chinese, European, Iranian, Islamic, Korean, Siddha, Tibetian and Unani traditional medicine.
