Funds allotted to Natural Medicine Research:-

Funding’s for Natural and Herbal Medicine

The National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) funds and conducts research to help answer important scientific and public health questions about complementary health approaches. NCCIH works to determine what is promising, what helps and why, what doesn’t work, and what is safe.

Funding for Research on Complementary and Alternative Medical Approaches (NIH)

Visualizing your tumor as an enemy base being fired upon by your body's fleet of jet fighters or having tiny needles inserted all over your body may sound like strange ways to treat disease, but more and more often, patients are turning to unconventional treatments for a variety of ailments either instead of, or in addition to, mainstream medical practices.



Funding’s for Traditional & Herbal Medicine As attention & public funding for international traditional and herbal medicine research collaborations grows, more detailed analysis of ethical matters in this research is warranted. Scant literature has addressed selected issues such as informed consent & independent review associated to traditional and herbal medicine research.6,7 Here we apply a practical, comprehensive & widely accepted ethical framework to international traditional and herbal medicine research. We examine in detail difficult questions related to social value, scientific validity and favourable risk benefit ratio. We conclude with implications for upcoming research in this field, focusing on the importance of collaborative partnership.

Budget Mechanism $127,930 (Dollars in Thousands) 


It is estimated that Europe alone annually imports about 400,000 tonnes of medicinal plants with an average market value of US$ 1 billion from Africa and Asia.

But what do we really know about the efficacy of such interventions?

Anecdotal evidence suggests that some complementary and alternative practices work, but very few of these treatments have been studied systematically. This is precisely why two different entities, the Office of Cancer Complementary and Alternative Medicine (OCCAM) and the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM), have been created within the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Planning a Trip to Vancouver, Canada!!! Attending Meeting!!!

An issue with VISA!!

Natural Medicine Committee will be happy to help you in all regards to plan your trip to Vancouver, Canada. Avail the official invitation letter from us to attend this event ahead with a closer step for approval of your VISA.

Find out what you need to do to visit Canada as a tourist or business person, how to extend your stay in Canada and what documents you need to carry with you to transit through Canada.

Application submission:

Canada does not have a visa office in every country so it is important that Delegates/Attendees visit the website of the visa office responsible for processing their visa applications.  Information is available on the website on how to submit a visa application and the documentation required. 

Delegates/Attendees are encouraged to submit their visa applications well in advance of the date of the event at a Visa Application Centre or on-line E-applications (e-Apps).


This system allows clients to submit applications online.

Delegates/Attendees that need a visa but require their passport for other travel purposes are strongly encouraged to submit their visa applications online (e-Apps).  Delegates/Attendees that choose to apply online will not have to submit their passport until a decision has been taken on their applications.  If required, the visa office will send the applicant instructions on how and where to send their passports to finalize the visa process.  

Visa Application Centres (VACs):

VACs are commercial service providers authorized by Canada to provide specific services to applicants. 

VACs provide a number of services including help applicants fill out forms, answer questions and ensure that applications are complete, thereby reducing unnecessary delays or refusals due to incomplete applications.

Applicants that are required to provide biometrics information as part of the visa application process can do so at a VAC.  Additional information on the biometrics requirements is available at the IRCC website.

VACs send applications to Visa Offices and transmit decisions to applicants in a secure and confidential manner. VACs do not process visa applications and play no role in the decision-making process.

Visa Applications Processing Time:

Processing time for visa applications vary depending on the office and the time of the year.  Participants should be encouraged to apply early for their visas, and to submit complete applications including all supporting documents.  

Please visit the IRCC website for information on the time it takes to process visa applications at the various visa offices. 

NEW - Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA)

As of March 15, 2016, visa-exempt foreign nationals are expected to have an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) to fly to or transit through Canada. Exceptions include U.S. citizens and travelers with a valid Canadian visa. Canadian citizens, including dual citizens, and Canadian permanent residents are not eligible to apply for an eTA.

However, from March 15, 2016, until fall 2016, travellers who do not have an eTA can board their flight, as long as they have appropriate travel documents, such as a valid passport. During this time, border services officers can let travellers arriving without an eTA into the country, as long as they meet the other requirements to enter Canada. We invite you to consult the IRCC website regularly for information updates on eTA.
