All chapters are officially recognized by their governments, and all chapters (except the USA) are associated with organizations of traditional health care practitioners. PROMETRA International conducts scientific research, hosts international conferences and cultural exchanges, publishes a quarterly bilingual journal entitled Medecin Verte, and coordinates a continent wide network of organizations promoting African traditional medicine and culture. PROMETRA International partners with academic institutions throughout Africa, USA, Polynesia and Europe.
The mission of PROMETRA International is to preserve African traditional medicine, culture and indigenous science through research, education, development, advocacy and service; and to improve the health and well being of Africa and the Diaspora.
PROMETRA is as much an organism of cultural research, medical practice, scientific research structure work as an instrument of African integration and international relations though the rehabilitation of traditional medicine, ancient religions and universal spirituality.
