This paper describes an ontology for African Traditional Medicine (ATM), which is the basis for a knowledge management system, controlled by a multi-agent system. The interest of this problem, from the point of view of artificial intelligence and software engineering lies on the issues that arise from integration of the requirements of the different stakeholders in such a system and the diverse nature of concepts to be considered in such an ontology. One of these issues is the need to allow the ontology to evolve as far as experts provide more knowledge and the mechanisms for validation of such knowledge.
