Dear Editor,

Since the year 2000, 31st of August of every year has been set aside by the World Health Organization (WHO) to celebrate the contributions of African Traditional Medicine (ATM). The 2022 commemoration highlights the challenges against the development of ATM in Nig-eria and how they can be overcome; how the country can maximize it to boost foreign exchange earnings and health care; and what role ATM can play in addressing the rise in viral and infectious diseases such as monkeypox, COVID19, Marburg virus, Langya Henipavirus, Polio and others. This letter addresses the above issues raised by Nigerian Office of the WHO.
