Primate Parts Still Being Used for "Medicinal Purposes"

It's not just tiger parts and elephant tusks that are being used for so called "traditional" medicinal uses. I didn't know primates were in demand too. I knew about bush meat, but not about this.
Will it ever end?

"a small piece of chimpanzee bone is tied to a child’s waist or wrist, as parents believe it will make the child stronger as he grows older."

Changing this kind of ignorance is hard... If not impossible. But we can only hope & try... :(
