Historic Step forward in Traditional Medicine for Vietnam

REMEMBER Tuesday September 22 2015 as a very special and auspicious day indeed! Today Animals Asia signed a pledge with the Vietnamese Traditional Medicine Association to end the use of bear bile in traditional medicine by 2020. This has been achieved through the co-operative endeavours of TMA Vietnam & Animals Asia including the collection of scientific data highlighting the detrimental and often deadly effects of using infected bile plus delivery of educational programmes and literature for medical practitioners, highlighting the successful substitution of herbal alternatives. Their concerted efforts are reflected in the reduction in numbers of practitioners still using bear bile.

Signing the pledge!

Eight of Jigsaw’s supporters are currently in Vietnam and about visit Jigsaw and his bear buddies!

But to be invited to join in the witnessing of this historic day was an extraordinary privilege!
