Abstract

The aim of this study was to investigate medicinal plants used to treat malaria by a society in Pamotan village, Pangandaran Regency, West Java Province, Indonesia. The work was conducted using the Participatory Rural Appraisal (PRA) method, which is an assessment process-oriented to active community involvement in the form of direct interview activities. Information was collected by interviewing respondents using a semi-structured questionnaire. Interviews were directed to the plants used to prevent and overcome malaria by referring to the list of questions which included the local name of the plant, the part used and the method of preparation and administration. A total of 47 respondents were interviewed of which 43% were females and 57% males. Results indicated that thirteen species of plants belonging were used to treat malaria by the villagers of Pamotan. The three plants that have the highest citation frequency are bitter herbs (Andrographis paniculata Ness.) 35.71%, papaya leaves (Carica papaya L.) 21.43%, and cut leaf ground cherry whole plants (Physalis angulata L.) 21.43%. The most common preparation method is decoction and the route of administration is oral. It is concluded that the Pamotan villagers in Pangandaran district, Indonesia, still use ingredients from plants as complementary medicine to treat malaria.
