Gada is a traditional system of governance used by the Oromo people in Ethiopia developed from knowledge gained by communities through experience over generations. The system regulates the political, economic, social, and religious activities of the community, dealing with issues such as conflict resolution, reparation, and protecting women’s rights. It serves as a mechanism for enforcing moral conduct, building social cohesion, and expressing forms of the community‘s culture.
Traditional medicine in Ethiopia has been practiced for centuries and is still regularly used today by many people. It might include the use of medicinal plants, spiritual healing, massage, or a combination of all three. Traditional medical practitioners are highly respected in the country and often pass down knowledge through generations.
