Medicinal plants in Ghana

Ghana Climate And Vegetation

Concerning accessibility, Anyinam (1987) distinguishes between locational and revealed accessibility the proof of access is in the use of a service, not simply the presence of a facility. It is generally assumed that traditional practitioners are more accessible to poorer people than Western trained doctors because of the lower costs. This is not always the case, however, as Falconer et al. (1992) suggest that certain specialist indigenous healers are expensive however, the self-administration of herbal remedies is within the reach of most people. Diseases caused by natural forces, such as malaria, diarrhoea and measles. These can be cured by the biomedical clinic, or by herbal medicine. Herbalists are the most numerous traditional practitioners in Ghana. They approach healing through the use and application of herbs, with or without ritual manipulation. The content of their practice varies widely, and Wondergem et al. (1989) identify a number of subcategories and specialities...

Biodiversity conservation in perspective

The danger of overexploitation is illustrated by the reduction in size of specific medicinal plants. In Ghana, the bark of the Khaya senegalensis has been in high demand for both gum and herbal remedies. The plant is being threatened by extinction (Heywood, 1991 4). A medicinal plant in Cameroon, the Pygeum africanus, was becoming an endangered species. This plant is central in alleviating the urinary problems of indigenous communities (Heywood, 1991 4). The Cameroonian government introduced a system of regulated debarking (over a limited time scale) to save the plant (Heywood, 1991 4). In some countries, a respectful policy of re-orientation towards traditional medicine has rejuvenated peoples' appreciation of herbal remedies, which in time, led to a substantial increase in demand. This phenomenon triggered human waves of wildstock over harvesting, the aftermath of which was a bitter legacy of deforestation and the erosion of species diversity.4 Legislation has since been enacted in...

Key reasons for use of supercritical fluid extraction SFE

SFE from food, pharmaceutical, nutraceutical and other natural and biological products has received significant attention in recent years. Rozzi and Singh (2002), Mohamed and Mansoori (2002) and Raventos et al. (2002) reviewed applications of supercritical fluids in the food industry. Rizvi (1994), Awasthi and Trivedi (1997), as well as Mukhopadhyay (2000), enumerated extraction techniques from natural materials. King and List (1996) dealt with applications for SFE for lipids and oils. Chen and Ling (2000), as well as Lang and Wai (2001) and Catchpole et al., (2004), described applications of SFE technologies for herbal medicine. Apart from these detailed reviews and books, there are several other research publications on supercritical fluids for the extraction of various biological materials (Froning et al., 1990 Peker et al., 1992 Bhaskar et al., 1993 List et al., 1993 Tsuda et al., 1995 Chester et al., 1998 Cheung et al., 1998 Nguyen et al., 1998 Ambrosino et al., 1999 Cheng et...

Yasmin von Schirnding

Sustainable development cannot be achieved where there is debilitating illness, nor can good health be sustained when poor environments prevail (von Schirnding 2001, 2002b). Age-old public health hazards such as inadequate and unsafe food and water, microbiological contamination of the environment, and poor sanitation and environmental hygiene are still prevalent. In addition, new environment and development problems have emerged, some of which appear to threaten the entire ecosystem. The level of economic development and the policy choices of individual countries are important factors determining the nature of the problems faced and the ways in which they are addressed (von Schirnding 2002a).

Conclusions conservation of medicinal plants habitats and indigenous technical knowledge

There may well be a danger of over-romanticising the role of indigenous technical knowledge systems and traditional resource management regimes (see Brandon and Wells, 1992). In many tropical countries massive improvements in infant mortality and life expectancy have resulted from the introduction of scientific medical practices such as child immunisation. Indigenous property regimes are not necessarily more egalitarian or equitable, some are feudal in nature. Experience has proved that many compounds found in herbal medicines have powerful pharmaceutical properties (Schultes, 1991). Indeed, traditional knowledge has been sought by prospectors from multinational drug companies as a first lead to promising plant compounds, to the extent that herbalists are becoming suspicious of inquiries from outsiders about their remedies. Traditional medicine undoubtedly brings health benefits to many rural people, a large proportion of whom do not have access to biomedical services.

Climate Change and Biodiversity Loss The Great New Threats to Peace Security and Development

In addition to the issues linked to food security, climate change could also increase health hazards. Through geographic changes in weather patterns, rainfall and temperature, climate change is predicted to dramatically increase the extent and prevalence of some vector-borne diseases, such as malaria and dengue fever. Extreme weather events may also increase vulnerability to water, food or human-borne diseases such as cholera and dysentery, and lead to increases in heat-related mortality and illness. Floods and droughts may result in declining quantity and quality of drinking water. Clean and adequate quantities of water are a prerequisite for good health and prevention of child mortality without this basic necessity, morbidity and mortality rates rise. Climate change may exacerbate malnutrition by reducing natural resource productivity.

Medicinal Plants Of Introduction

The value of biodiversity as a source of pharmaceutically active substances has been the subject of a number of studies, for example Pearce and Puroshothaman (this volume), McNeely (1988), Farnsworth and Soejarto (1985) and Principe (1991). This value is now being cited as one of the many arguments for conserving natural habitats and, in particular, tropical forests which contain the largest number of plant species. These analyses, however, ignore the additional role of these as sources of medicines in the form of herbal treatments used by the majority of people in developing countries. Furthermore, this direct local use of plant resources contributes to the preservation of species and habitats, and can be used as the basis for conservation policies centred on indigenous management regimes and utilisation. The success of such policies depends on the allocation of property rights and the cultural status of herbal medicine which could be an important component of primary health care in...

The Opposition to Nuclear Power

Region around Chernobyl to Britain and to provide them with medical attention and a healthy life. These children were designated 'victims of Chernobyl' who had been exposed to deadly nuclear radiations that would greatly shorten their lives. Pictures of the children and their tragic stories were given great publicity in the media. In fact there was no evidence that they had been exposed to abnormal amounts of radiation, and their generally poor state of health was due to decades of malnutrition.

Why preserve the chemical diversity of plants

Aylward (this volume) suggests that as traditional herbal remedies are likely to be the first ethnobotanical sources screened the chances of discovery will diminish as the 25 000 or so traditional remedies are worked through, leaving the plants which are not used as remedies with a store of compounds

Plant chemicals in the evolution of mammals and humans

The lines leading to modern humans and the chimpanzees, our nearest primate relatives, diverged 6-10 million years bp, but fully modern humans did not emerge until c. 100000 years ago (Diamond, 1989). Modern chimpanzees eat a wide range of plant material with the occasional intake of meat. The diet of emerging humans almost certainly included a high proportion of meat (Blumenschine, 1991), but until the start of farming c. 10 000 years ago also a wide range of plant species. With farming came an increase in the proportion of plant material in the diet relative to meat, but a reduction in the range of plant species, and therefore in the range of plant chemicals, consumed (Schoeninger, 1982). Excavations at a site in Syria dated to the time of the conversion to agriculture revealed a reduction from about 200 to 20 in the range of species eaten (Hillman et al., 1989). These changes were associated with increased levels of malnutrition and disease (Garn and Leonard, 1989 Ulijasek, 1991)....

Indirect Effects Of Global Warming

Due to these direct effects on the global climate, nations worst hit by some or few of the elements of global warming effects are most likely to suffer from increasing under population, as gradually, people begin to move away from areas of incessant flooding, drought, and erosion, to areas of calmness and freedom from such environmentally dictated occurrence. This would invariably lead to the overpopulation of neighboring towns, cities, and countries, creating attending situations associated with such phenomenon. Issues of over population have over the years been linked to over-use of available natural and developed resources. As the average population of a place begins to grow, higher demand would begin to be placed on living factors such as energy, water, space, food, good health facilities, shelter, and security. The result is that more waste would be produced due to increased human presence and activities.

Food Security And The Food Security Policy Synthesis

Chronically undernourished individuals rarely receive dietary energy considered by nutritionists to be necessary for light activity and good health. The Food and Agriculture Organization (2002) defines food security as a goal achieved when all people at all times have physical, social, and economic access to sufficient, safe, and nutritious food that meets their dietary needs and food preferences for an active and healthy life. The World Bank and the U.S. Agency for International Development employ similar definitions of food security.

Prescriptions and policy implications

A number of problems in the marketing of such products can be identified for example, poor transportation, irregularity of product supply and insufficient market information. Plant medicines can be difficult to market as they often need to be fresh (one of the advantages of Western drugs is that they can be stored). Amanor (1992) notes that one of the greatest requirements of traders in herbal medicines are containers and labels which allow them to store products for sale. This may be one way in which the trade in medicinal plants can be given more added value and made more profitable for small traders. Responses to a survey of traditional healers in west Ghana (Fink, 1990) revealed that there is a need for training in methods of conserving plant medicines. In the past attempts have been made to standardise products as one way of sustaining demand. Although a number of studies have shown the value of sustainable harvesting of non-timber forest products to be considerable (Peters et...

Secondary health benefits of mitigation policies

Cities in China and India have the worst air quality in the world (174,175). Reductions of greenhouse gas emissions in these countries will have a greater health benefit per unit of reduction than in the industrialized countries that have strict controls. Thus, governments can directly improve health in poorer countries by supporting the use or introduction of climate-friendly technologies. The specific mechanism for this under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change is the clean development mechanism.

Information dispersal and perpetuation

In cultures with written language, revered ethnobotanical traditions have been transposed into elaborate volumes on ethnomedicine, horticulture, famine foods and other compilations. Ayurvedic doctors trained in Ayurvedic schools, for example, rely on a vast body of reference material, botanical gardens and collegial support in their practices. The same is true in Chinese traditional medicine where an extensive network of institutions are devoted to the study of plants and their uses. In countries such as Thailand and Tibet, monasteries have provided an educational structure for a large percentage of the population, and a sanctuary for traditional practices. This was also true, ironically, of European monasteries in the Dark Ages, which protected folk knowledge of herbs at a time when anything that might be mistaken for witchcraft went underground (Griggs, 1981).

Health care pharmaceuticals and plants

The demand for new drugs and, therefore, for the product of pharmaceutical R&D originates in the health care market. This is true regardless of the method of drug development and whether the drug is a synthetic or natural compound. Ethical pharmaceuticals are just one method of treating ill health.1 Surgery, irradiation treatment, manipulation of diet and lifestyle, herbal medicines, physiotherapy, faith healing, etc. are all active means of providing health care to those whose lives are impaired by disease. In addition to treatments that may either cure disease or ameliorate its effects, the use of preventive medicine must be included as an alternative, proactive means of satisfying the demand for good health. While principally founded on exercising care in the choice of diet and lifestyle (including exercise), the preventive efforts may also rely on the judicious use of surgery, drugs and other treatments.

Some Public Misperceptions

Another important aspect of public attitudes toward biodiversity is the high level of influence of aesthetic, ethical, patriotic, familial, and religious values in motivating a sense of responsibility for stewardship. In the 2002 Biodiversity Project poll, 64 regarded a wide variety of animals and plants as one of the most important things in their lives, and 71 felt that nature provided them with inspiration and a peace of mind. Respect for God's work, respect for nature for its own sake, the need to provide for future generations, the appreciation of the beauty of nature, the need to maintain a balanced healthy life, and the expectation as an American citizen to protect natural resources all were regarded as ''extremely

Box 1 Definitions of Food Security

Food security is defined in its most basic form as access by all people at all times to the food needed for a healthy life. Achieving food security has three dimensions first, it is necessary to ensure a safe and nutritionally adequate food supply both at the national level and at the household level. Second, it is necessary to have a reasonable degree of stability in the supply of food both from one year to the other and during the year. Third, and most critical, is the need to ensure that each household has physical, social, and economic access to enough food to meet its needs. This means that each household must have the knowledge and ability to produce or procure the food that it needs on a sustainable basis. In this context, properly balanced diets that supply all necessary nutrients and energy without leading to overconsumption or waste should be encouraged. It is also important to encourage the proper distribution of food within the household, among its members.

Assumptions about future trends

For much of the world's population, the ability to lead a healthy life is limited by the direct and indirect effects of poverty (World Bank et al., 2004). Although the percentage of people living on less than US 1 day has decreased in Asia and Latin America since 1990, in the sub-Saharan region 46 of the population is now living on less than US 1 day and little improvement is expected in the short and medium term. Poverty levels in Europe and Central Asia show few signs of improvement (World Bank, 2004 World Bank et al., 2004). Economic growth in the richest regions has outstripped advances in other parts of the world, meaning that global disparities in income have increased in the last 20 years (UNEP and WCMC, 2002).

Why study glaciers

Relatively recent changes in climate and in concentrations of certain anthropogenic substances in the atmosphere are attracting increasing attention as humans struggle with problems of maintaining a healthy living environment in the face of overpopulation and the resulting demands on natural resources. Studies of ice cores and other dated ice samples provide a baseline from which to measure these anthropogenic changes. For example, levels of lead in the Greenland ice sheet increased about four-fold when Greeks and Romans began extracting silver from lead sulphides (Hong et al., 1994). Then, after dropping slightly in the first millennium AD, they increased to 80 times natural levels during the industrial revolution and to 200 times natural levels when lead additives became common in gasoline (Murozumi etal., 1969). These studies are largely responsible for the fact that lead is no longer used in gasoline. Similarly, measurements of CO2 and CH4 in ice cores have documented levels of...

Beaten by all sides

One other way for oil companies to attempt to douse energy conflicts is by ensuring local ownership of (or buying off) the local community. However, the provision of school blocks and clinics has not been effective in resolving conflicts. One community activist made a poignant remark when he said that he would rather stay healthy than endure pollution and stay sick in a well-equipped hospital.

Food Security

Food security is defined as a situation that exists when all people, at all times, have physical, social, and economic access to sufficient, safe, and nutritious food that meets their dietary needs and food preferences for an active and healthy life (Schmidhuber and Tubiello, 2007). The four dimensions of food security are availability (the overall ability of agricultural systems to meet food demand), stability (the ability to acquire food during income or food price shocks), access (the ability of individuals to have adequate resources to acquire food), and utilization (the ability of the entire food chain to deliver safe food). Climate change affects all four dimensions directly or indirectly all can be affected at the same time by nonclimatic factors such as social norms, gender roles, formal and informal institutional arrangements, economic markets, and global to local agricultural policies. For example, utilization can be affected through the impact of warming on spoilage and...

Green Cities

These advantages make green cities very desirable places to live. This is reflected in the increased property values found in green cities and the aggressive competition to be listed among the environmental leaders by the Green Guide on Earth Day. The top 10 green cities are awarded for providing energy-efficient, least polluting, and healthy living spaces, and whose green achievements set the standard for others. These standards are currently of large importance due to the lack of federal direction. Cities across the United States and the rest of the world are taking environmental stewardship into their own hands and reducing their environmental impact. In relation to climate change, city mayors working to lower greenhouse gases best exemplify this several hundred have signed the U.S. Mayors Climate Protection Agreement.

This has called for a development of the field away from only describing health risks from climate change to a more serious consideration of how best to support public health policy and disease control programs to cope with this emerging threat. In line with the Executive Board resolution, WHO is reframing its support to Member States on health and climate change around three main objectives (1) raising awareness, (2) promoting health through climate change mitigation, and (3) strengthening health systems to address the additional health risks from climate change.


The basic state of knowledge in the field of weather climate and human health allows for the delivery of a number of advisory services in order to enhance the capability of societies and individuals to properly adapt to climate and climate change. As regards risk factors, biometeorology has to inform and advise the public and decision makers in politics and administration with the aim of recognizing and averting health risks at an early stage, in the framework of preventive planning, for example by making recommendations for ambient environmental standards, by evaluation of location decisions, and by consultation on adaptive behaviour. Thus services for improving health and well-being of the population can be provided as a result of the work of the National Meteorological Services (NMSs). and climate change. Examples are given from the fields HHWSs and precautionary planning in urban areas. The significance of these issues also in the context of the climate change problem is obvious....
