Solo – Indonesian Minister of Health Terawan Agus Putranto initiated the development of traditional treatment at the Bung Karno Solo Regional Hospital.
“Traditional treatment is a local wisdom that can be promoted and this can be global,” he said while visiting the Bung Karno Hospital in Solo on Friday.
He said traditional treatment could also be “medical tourism” to be developed later. “Who knows, traditional research can be used for COVID-19 treatment and so on. That’s where we want to modernize traditional treatment as a good icon,” he said.
Terawan hopes that the traditional treatment center can become a place for services, development, research and technology.
Related to this, Surakarta Mayor FX Hadi Rudyatmo appreciated it. He said the Ministry of Health would fully support the development of RSUD as a traditional treatment center.
“Including the support of its human resources. Also want to stop by Tawangmangu (Center for Research and Development of Medicinal Plants and Traditional Medicines Ministry of Health),” he said.
He said with this development, traditional medicine can support modern medicine, unlike today where modern medicine actually supports traditional medicine.
“The supply will be from Tawangmangu. If this can be developed, Indonesian people can be more than 80 years old because their kidneys are healthy,” he said. (Ant)
