there is exponential growth of global interest in and use of traditional (i.e.
indigenous), complementary and alternative medicine (TCAM).
One of the most significant contributions of the MEASURE DHS program is the creation of an
internationally comparable body of data on the demographic and health characteristics of populations in

objectives of both series are to provide information for policy formulation at the international level and to
