5th Global Summit on Medicinal and Aromatic Plants 2013 (GOSMAP) Malaysia

  • Conference Call
  • The V. Sivaram Research Foun­da­tion (VSRF) together with the Cen­tury Foun­da­tion and Uni­ver­sity of Tech­nol­ogy Mara are kindly invit­ing you to par­tic­i­pate in the 5th Global Sum­mit on Med­ical and Aro­matic Plants 2013, held Decem­ber 8 – 12, 2013 in Miri, Sarawak, Malaysia.

    The theme of the sum­mit will be Herbal Drugs for Health Care in 21st Cen­tury.

    Scope of the Meeting

    Med­i­c­i­nal and aro­matic plants in many forms have been used since the ancient times in the tra­di­tional med­i­c­i­nal prac­tices for health care. South Asia is home to many rich, tra­di­tional sys­tems of med­i­cine (TSM). Ayurvedic sys­tem dates back to 5000 B.C. Along with the Unani, Sid­dha and Tibetan sys­tems, these TSMs remain impor­tant source of every­day health and liveli­hood for tens of mil­lions of people.

    Accord­ing to WHO report, med­i­c­i­nal plants are acces­si­ble, afford­able and cul­tur­ally appro­pri­ate sources of pri­mary health care for more than 80% of the world pop­u­la­tion relies on tra­di­tional med­i­cine largely plant based for their pri­mary health­care needs. Accord­ing to WHO, the inter­na­tional mar­ket of herbal prod­ucts is esti­mated to be US $ 62 bil­lion which is poised to grow to US $ 5 tril­lion by the year 2050.

    Aro­matic plants and their prod­ucts par­tic­u­larly essen­tial oils are becom­ing more impor­tant. Tra­di­tional med­i­cine is, at the present time accepted as an alter­na­tive for or used in con­junc­tion with the west­ern med­ical prac­tice in many countries.

    The 5th Global Sum­mit on Med­i­c­i­nal and Aro­matic Plants is there­fore being orga­nized to pro­vide a forum for research sci­en­tists, tra­di­tional health prac­ti­tion­ers, aca­d­e­mi­cians, rep­re­sen­ta­tives from the med­ical and phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal indus­tries, con­ser­va­tion biol­o­gists, bio­chemists, NGOs, pol­icy mak­ers, farm­ers, gov­ern­ment agen­cies etc. to dis­cuss, share the advanced infor­ma­tion and expe­ri­ences on MAP. Also, the sched­uled meet­ing is very impor­tant for future research col­lab­o­ra­tion and net­work­ing between insti­tu­tions par­tic­u­larly in the pro­mo­tion and devel­op­ment of med­i­c­i­nal and aro­matic plant sec­tor for sus­tain­able health pro­mo­tional activities.
