The Ethnomedicine Practitioners Association of South Africa (EPASA) is a  non profit federal organization that accredits and controls ethno- and traditional health practitioners.  Its members are responsible for caring for public health in all spheres.

The Ethnomedicine Practitioners Association of South Africa (EPASA) was established in 1987, in order to promote, enhance and unify the practice of ethnomedicine in South Africa.

EPASA stands for Ethnomedicine Practitioners Association of South Africa and is a body which accredits and controls the ethnomedical practice. It's members are responsible for caring for public health in all spheres.

African Traditional Medicine is a mainstay of primary health care for the majority in Africa. About 80% of the population has relied on resources within their environment to survive since God's creation.

Plants, minerals and animals constitute the major natural resources ever used by mankind for preventative, curative and rehabilitative health in Africa. Like any other continent, these resources have been used for over ten thousand years by traditional health practitioners (THP's), who acquired their knowledge and skills through observation, spiritual revelation, personal experience, training and direct information from their predecessors.
