Take homoeopathy to the masses in interior, remote places, urges Naidu

Take homoeopathy to the masses in interior, remote places, urges Naidu

New Delhi, Apr 10 (UNI) Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu on Tuesday asked everyone concerned to take

Homoeopathy to the masses in the interior, remote places, where it is practically difficult to dispense medicines

owing to lack of logistics or limited resources.

Speaking on the occasion of World Homeopathy Day, he called for making Homeopathy into a mass movement,

saying it provided an apt solution for many challenges the country was facing in health due to inadequate

resources.

Noting that Homoeopathy was witnessing a major demand in India, he said of the total AYUSH dispensaries

of the central Government, 30 per cent were Homoeopathic dispensaries. The number of institutionally

qualified registered practitioners was also going considerably up, and there were about 2.8 lakh

homoeopathic doctors in the country.

'Homoeopathy is one of the greatest discoveries of the 18th century and mankind cannot thank this great

man enough for gifting it to us! Since Homoeopathy is cost-effective, easy to administer and has no side-effects,

it provides an apt solution for many challenges we are facing in health due to paucity of resources today,' he

said addressing a gathering on the occasion of World Homeopathy Day here to commemorate the birthday of Dr Samuel Hahnemann, the founder of the alternative treatment.

He mentioned that the treatment was now offered in many primary and secondary health centres in India

as also in some tertiary setups. At many places, it was an integral part of health programmes like Swasthya

Rakshan Programme. Under ‘Homoeopathy for Healthy Child’ screening, early diagnosis and management

of common diseases of children and adolescents was being done while under the National Programme for

Prevention and Control of Cancer, Diabetes, Cardiovascular Diseases & Stroke (NPCDCS), homoeopathy

has been integrated in some districts to prevent and treat lifestyle-based, non-communicable diseases.

Minister of State for AYUSH (Independent Charge) Shripad Yesso Naik and other dignitaries were also seen.

The Vice President also asked Homoeopathy students, aspiring doctors to further spread reach of Homoeopathy

by their work, as it was a relatively novel science and used by more than 80 countries in the world, an official

release here said.
