Herbal medicine/Phytotherapy in Albania

Herbal medicine is regulated in the “Law on Health Care” from 2009, section 20, Alternative medicine , as a therapeutic system that does not follow the general medical methods that are accepted and may not have a scientific explanation for their effectiveness (13). Treatments, conditions and manner of use of herbal medicine shall be determined by order of the Minister of Health (13). Advertisement and practice of herbal medicine treatment unlicensed by MoH are prohibited (13). There are no follow up regulations approved by MoH that regulates herbal medicine treatment. Herbal medicine/ phytotherapy might still be governed by Albania's general regulation of CAM, which you can read about in our article on Albania.
