Collection of information on medicinally useful plants or organisms by creating publicly accessible herbaria 1) to explore and continue including medicinally important exotic and native species from various geographical locations on the earth 2) to communicate their role in health and nutrition, is useful for both agriculture diversification, and research 3) in training and educating future generations for awareness to keep up to date with valuable imprints of our ancient discoveries through digitization and 4) to encourage new and applied research in health science. A medical herbarium facility is necessary in every district or county and a small herbarium facility in every organization including elementary school to house the plants of their region. This action will help to protect our germplasm resources, maintain ecology and biodiversity, enhance the discovery research related to health and create employment to newly trained graduates and premedical students.
