ABSTRACT:

Herbal medicine is used as the primary source of healthcare for approximately 75-80% of the world population and its use is particularly widespread in the developing countries, where it is considered more culturally acceptable, less dangerous and a more natural form of medicine that is compatible with the human body. This study was designed to evaluate the KAP level of herbal medicine usage among women in Hail, Saudi Arabia. A self-administered questionnaire was used to capture the data from 132 participants based on convenience sampling method. The data from each of the questionnaire were coded and entered into SPSS software which was used for data analysis. After the study, information booklet was prepared and distributed to the participants to improve their knowledge on usage of common herbal medicine which influences the correct usage of herbal medicine in day-to-day life.
