Artemisia annua anamed ("A-3") Program
Pharmaceutical companies worldwide sell drugs, that are isolated from the plant Artemisia annua. Wild plants of this species have, however, three disadvantages: they can't grow in the tropical lowlands, they have few leaves, and they have a too low potency to fight strongly against malaria. The hybrid "Artemisia annua anamed" , however, is rich in potency, has many leaves, and grows up to 3 m on our fields in Germany, South Africa, Congo-Zaire, Uganda, Kenya, Brazil etc.! And: everywhere where malaria is prevalent, there is water and therefore the possibility to plant Artemisia annua anamed. Further information see under Artemisia.

- peat disks for easy sowing.
- materials to aid in taking cuttings.
- the document “Artemisia annua anamed: Cultivation and uses” in English, French, German, Portuguese or Spanish (please specify the language!). This document gives comprehensive information, particularly regarding the treatment of malaria.

Total weight about 1.5 kg.
We can supply our starterkit to:
- Community groups, NGOs, churches, missionaries and others who wish to grow Artemisia annua in order that the local community can treat malaria with their home grown artemisia tea, and at the same time benefit local small scale farmers.
- People or organisations in the Tropics who wish to grow artemisia for sale to industry. However, for the reasons explained on our web-site, we prefer that artemisiais grown and even sold to treat malaria directly in the community as tea.
- Researchers and research organisations, which have the aim of helping their country to become more independent in treating malaria.
The document “Artemisia annua anamed: Cultivation and uses” gives advice on:
- Cultivation: how to sow the seeds, to take care of the seedlings, to plant them out in the field, to propagate more plants and to harvest and dry the leaves.
- The use of Artemisia annua to treat malaria.
- The uses of Artemisia annua, both internally and externally, to treat other diseases.
Once you have bought a kit for use in a particular country, we are willing to provide you with the names and addresses of others in that country that have also bought a kit. This facilitates the process of networking and mutual support.
Together with your Starter-kit, you may also like to order refill packs of seeds (Order No. 412) or additional packs of dried artemisia leaves (Order No. 411).
