Sarbananda Sonowal inaugurates two-day scientific convention on ‘Homeopathy: People’s Choice for Wellness’

Union Minister of AYUSH Sarbananda Sonowal on Saturday inaugurated a two-day scientific convention on ‘Homeopathy: People’s Choice for Wellness’ in New Delhi.

The three apex bodies under the Ministry of Ayush namely, Central Council for Research in Homeopathy, National Commission for Homeopathy and National Institute of Homeopathy are jointly organizing this convention on the World Homeopathy Day which is observed to commemorate the birth anniversary of the founder of Homeopathy, Dr. Christian Fredrich Samuel Hahnemann.

Addressing the gathering, Mr Sonowal emphasized that a transformative shift is underway in education, practice and drug development sectors of AYUSH. He said that the National Commission for Indian Systems of Medicine and the National Commission for Homeopathy which have been recently formed have aligned AYUSH education according to the new education policy and are attracting new talents to the extent that, not only AYUSH is the first choice of treatment but could also become the first choice for students seeking medical education. The Minister further said that public acceptance of Homeopathy is high and people seek treatment from the family physicians for generations.

In his address, Minister of State for AYUSH, Dr Mahendrabhai Munjpara highlighted that Homeopathy is very effective in treating various diseases and improves individual health by safer means at a lesser cost.

This convention is an opportunity to review the path trodden so far, achievements in the field of Homeopathy and to formulate future strategies for development of Homeopathy. There is an imminent need to initiate a dialogue among the major stakeholders of Homeopathy to address much needed practice standards in clinical research informatics, data standards in clinical research, policy issues, educational standards, and instructional resources. This can be achieved by merging clinical care delivery and research as part of a changing paradigm in global health-care delivery in the context of rapid innovations in technology. A necessity to identify and propose strategic actions towards an effective and efficient inclusion of Homeopathy in integrative care is indispensable.

Homeopathic researchers, scientists from interdisciplinary streams, practitioners, students, industrialists along with representatives of various homeopathic associations participated in this convention.
