TCM Act Will Affect Traditional Medicine Businesses Without Certificates


News: The proposed Traditional and Complementary Medicine (TCM) Act in Malaysia will drive traditional medicine practitioners without paper qualification out of the practice after its implementation, Lee Chee Pheng , the president of the Malaysian Society for Complementary Medicine, has said. Pheng told Bernama the organisation wants a clause in the act that will require paper qualification for new practitioners, while allowing existing practitioners without paper qualification to continue their businesses. He also requested that officials at the health ministry discuss the TCM Act again in order to make it truly beneficial for practitioners in the country.
