The Aim of the present study was to document ethnomedicinal plants used to treat Infectious diseases by Muna Tribe in South-East Sulawesi, Indonesia. Ethnomedicinal data was collected by participant observation and open and semi-structured interviews to collect information from local healers who are native in the study area. Ten male key informants described 26 plant species belong to 20 Families, which are used as herbal medicine for Infections. The medicinal plants have been reported for their antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal properties. The families of Cucurbitaceae, Fabaceae, Malvaceae, Meliaceae, and Moraceae comprised of 46 % of all the plants documented. For the majoririty of the plants, the were commonly used part were leaves (55%), followed by fruits (16%), stems (13%), rhizomes and roots (6%), and flowers (3%). The data could be used as a basis for further studies on medicinal plants for future phytochemical and pharmacological studies
