Well-known herbalists from traditional hospitals in Ho Chi Minh City will provide free diagnosis, treatment and prescriptions to kick-off Herbal Medicine Week May 20.
The four-day event is being held in District 5 along several streets known for their herbal medicines.
The focus of the event will be at what is possibly Vietnam’s largest herbal medicine market, both wholesale and retail, located between Hai Thuong Lan Ong, Luong Nhu Hoc and Trieu Quang Phuc streets.
Some 126 booths will display oriental pharmaceutical products and lanterns will be hung along the three streets at night.
Renowned herbalists will give talks on cancer at a seminar.
