Pharm-Bio Technology and Traditional Medicine Centre (PHARMBIOTRAC) belongs to
Mbarara University of Science and Technology aiming at promoting research into and use of
traditional medicine. In April 2021, AVA also co-organised a week’s training with
PHARMBIOTRAC on the use of medicinal herbs at Businge, Kamwenge. As a follow-up to this
training, 30 people under the supervision of AVA have formed a group called “TAMBIRA
AMAGARA” (save life) to grow medicinal plants. AVA is the only one in the area focusing on
threatened species with potential health solutions.
