Traditional and Alternative Health Care Month

November 1, 2017 to November 30, 2017

Recognizing the importance of traditional and alternative medicines in providing essential health care to Filipinos, Presidential Proclamation No. 698 has declared November as Traditional and Alternative Health Care (TAHC) Month. The proclamation is in support of the Traditional and Alternative Medicine Act of 1997 (Republic Act No. 8423), which recognizes the value of traditional medicine for Filipinos, and has, therefore, integrated it into the national health care delivery system.
