Artemisia annua was formerly grown only in China and Viet Nam, but in 2004, WHO, with its partners the United States Agency for International Development, the BetterWorld Together Foundation and the non-governmental organization Technoserve, started a project aimed at helping farmers in the United Republic of Tanzania grow the plant.
