Founded in 1997 by the Bhikha Family Trust, the Ibn Sina Institute of Tibb (commonly known as Tibb) is a public benefit organisation that promotes the training and practice of Tibb in South Africa, with an emphasis on empowering individuals to take responsibility of their own health. Tibb approaches medicine and the individual holistically, looking at the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual dimension of each person. As a complimentary therapy, it shares common ground with conventional medicine and traditional African medicine.

At the Saartjie Baartman Centre, the Tibb Medical Centre offers holistic medical and health care to women and youth.
