Some 40 doctors of traditional Oriental medicine stage a sit-in protest Monday against a policy agreement related to herbal medications made by the government and the Association of Korean Medicine after taking over the association`s office. They claimed that allowing pharmacists who passed a test to prescribe herbal medicine covered by health insurance will "kill Oriental medicine." A massive rally in front of the office is scheduled Thursday to demand that the association’s administrative leaders resign.
