Indonesia is rich with natural resources potential and is about time for us to establish autonomy of raw material for medicine by exploring natural resources potential, including Temulawak, Ginger, Daun Kelor which being known as legendary traditional medicine.
"In China, ancestors' record of recipes and traditional remedies was tested empirically. It is unfortunate that in Indonesia we did not treat it wisely. We need to change our attitude towards respecting what God has given to us and change consumption behavior (proud of using made in Indonesia products). We live in tropical countries, where whatever we plant can easily grow, including Temulawak, ginger, daun kelor. Herbal resources must have health benefit, only we need to explore how to make the optimum use of them,” as revealed by MoH, Prof. Dr. Nila F. Moeloek during the hearing occasion.
Minister of Health expressed interest to partner with SOHO as an industry partner in empowering the potential of Indonesian herbs to explore the possibility of synergy and together thinking about innovative breakthrough for healthier Indonesia. SOHO's commitment to develop the potential of Indonesian herbs, such as Temulawak is expected by the Ministry of Health to continue to be developed and not only for Temulawak, but together to develop the rich potential of nature of Indonesia to realize the autonomy of raw materials for medicine.
