This scientific convention on April 9, 2022 was inaugurated by Sarbnanda Sonowal, Union Minister, Ministry of Ayush and Union Minister, Ministry of Ports, Shipping and Waterways along with Dr Mahendrabhai Munjpara, Minister of State (MoS), Ministry of Ayush and Minister of State (MoS), Ministry of Women and Child Development and Manoj Rajoria, Member of Parliament, as Guests of Honor. The delegates of this convention would include homeopathic researchers, scientists from interdisciplinary streams, practitioners, students, industrialists as well as representatives of various homeopathic associations.
Sonowal said, “The AYUSH systems, including Homeopathy, are effective in treating various diseases and improving individual health by safer means, at a lesser cost. The medicines are easily administered, are natural and acceptable. Public acceptance is high, and people seek treatment from the family physicians for generations. And with Homeopathy, known for its gentle approach and high safety, persons from the youngest to the eldest member of the family, with the mildest complaints to the most serious ones, take homeopathic treatment. ”
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 which will 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 healthcare 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.
The deliberations that will take place during this scientific convention will therefore aim at enhancing the acceptability of Homoeopathy by the public in general and give insights to a future roadmap for advancement of Homoeopathy as first choice for people’s wellness.
