This Mongolian Medicine project aims to investigate a multispecies approach within nomadic medical practices and how this knowledge has been transmitted on the Mongolian Plateau. The focus is on three different forms of knowledge transmission: learning through word-of-mouth and practical trial-and-error; a more structured form of learning through Buddhist monasteries, which engages with both apprenticeship and ancient texts; and the modern institutional model of the hospital. The ultimate aims are to contribute relevant aspects of Mongolian medical knowledge within a broad One Health framework, to establish more comprehensive knowledge of Mongolian techniques as multispecies practices and to contribute to global health care more broadly.
