Traditional Healing and Health Care Systems
In the domain of health, Lelewal and her partner communities decided to valorize traditional medicine and healing systems. Mr. Nkolo Thade, chief of Nyabibete said “This healing system is from our ancestors and is highly effective and less expensive, reason why we have to valorize , maintain and pass it to our younger generation” In the case of the Baka people, traditional medicine and healing systems has remained an option to the modern medicine which is too expensive and less accessible at the community level.
There is a Platform that sees the valorization, protection and promotion of the Baka Traditional Healing and Health Care Systems. The objective of the platform and Lelewal is the preservation of traditional knowledge, healing and traditional medicines and the conservation and sustainable management of natural genetic and biodiversity resources that’s constitute raw materials for their healing systems.
