With the help of many friends all over the world and especially in the Philippines and Indonesia, World Neighbors, in cooperation with AKAP, has produced a six-part filmstrip series, a set of four full-color posters and a 48-page booklet on the use of medicinal plants entitled Understanding Medicinal Plants.

The six filmstrips contain a total of 213 full-color, horizontal frames which are numbered consecutively so that they may be mounted and used as slides. There are over 100 different plants pictured and identified by name and use. The filmstrips are subtitled:

· Part One - The Role of Traditional Medicine
· Part Two - Aromatic Plants
· Part Three - Plants Which Work On The Stomach and Intestines
· Part Four - Plants Which Are Both Food and Medicine
· Part Five - Plants With Powerful Action
· Part Six - Methods of Preparation

The entire set of six filmstrips, along with the script booklet, is available for U.S. $50.00. The four filmstrips in which the plants are identified - Parts Two, Three, Four and Five - are available for U.S. $35.00. Individual filmstrips cost U.S. $9.50.

Sixty-four plants are pictured and identified on the four posters. The plants are grouped as they are in the filmstrips: according to aromatic plants, plants which work on the stomach and intestines, plants which are both food and medicine and plants with powerful action. The set of four posters costs U.S. $10.00.

If you are interested, but haven’t much money, the script booklet alone costs U.S. $5.00. All prices include surface postage.
