Anne Denys

Equator and public health officer, Anne Denys has been working at promoting traditional medicine for many years. She believes in practical solutions to global challenges and in a lifestyle achieved through balancing traditional world values with those of our modern world. Impressed by Amazonian medicine and its holistic approach to health and disease, she has been researching and trying to promote this topic for over 10 years. She completed a community health diagnosis with an indigenous perception of health at the request of the Shuar Indigenous Federation conjointly with the Ecuadorian Health Ministry and the French Ethno pharmacological Association. She spent three months a year for 10 years as a cultural ecotourism guide in the Peruvian forest helping traditional practitioners, which allowed to refine her refine her understanding of this type of medicine. She actually published a book on this topic with Harmattan in 2012.
