Traditional healer stand in an open market in Accra, Ghana Traditional medicine (also known as indigenous or folk medicine) comprises knowledge systems that developed over generations within various societies before the era of modern medicine. [citation needed] The World Health Organization (WHO) defines traditional medicine as: "Traditional medicine is the sum total of the knowledge, skills, and practices based on the theories, beliefs, and experiences indigenous to different cultures, whether explicable or not, used in the maintenance of health as well as in the prevention, diagnosis, improvement or treatment of physical and mental illness. "[1] In some Asian and African countries, up to 80% of the population relies on traditional medicine for their primary health care needs.

Traditional medicine may include formalized aspects of folk medicine, i.e. longstanding remedies passed on and practiced by lay people.

Organisations utilise websites to help visitors to find exactly what they are looking for within the site. Depending upon the goal of the organisation, these websites will cater to a certain audience, with specific goals in mind.

Some organisations are designed to make money, while others are designed to raise awareness. These factors are important to consider before investing time and money in website templates. Blogs, for example, are great ways for organisations to present information, but they are not ideal for selling a product. Regardless of the intentions of your organisation, you must be able to cater to a specific audience, and the only way to do that is to fully understand your audience. Take into account what visitors to your website are looking for, and make sure that you foster active participation. This is achieved by allowing people to make public comments on your website. Your organisation’s website should also be inviting to owners of other websites.
