The two-day Convention on World Homeopathy Day
has recently been launched by the Ministry of AYUSH. The convention is being
organised by the Central Council for Research in Homoeopathy (CCRH), an
autonomous research organisation under the Ministry of AYUSH.
A wide range of topics will be covered in the
convention such as a) Linking education and clinical practice with research, b)
Homoeopathic Education, c) Drug Development & Validation, d), Homoeopathy
in public health, e) Road ahead for Homeopathy etc.
The World Homeopathy Day is celebrated every
year on April 10th to commemorate the birth anniversary of the
founder of Homoeopathy, Dr. Christian Fredrich Samuel Hahnemann. It aims to
create awareness about the alternative system of medicine and to improve
accessibility and success rate.
The Ministry of AYUSH (Ayurveda, Yoga and
Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha, Homepathy) was established in 2014 to ensure the
optimal development and propagation of AYUSH systems of health care.
The Ministry runs several schemes that provides
support and motivation for promotion of Homoeopathy. Example: Short Term
Studentship in Homoeopathy Scheme (STSH) for undergraduate Students, CCRH
Scholarship Scheme for MD Students.
