Union Minister of State for Ayush and Women and Child Development, Dr. Mahendrabhai Munjapara, inaugurated a significant conference on Homeopathy in Kolkata today, focusing on the goal of achieving “Sarvajnaya Swasthya.”
The conference was organized by the Central Council for Research in Homoeopathy, in collaboration with the Dr. Anjali Chatterjee Regional Research Institute for Homoeopathy, as part of an East zone event. Its primary objective is to position homeopathy as the preferred choice for patient treatment, wellness, health promotion, and disease prevention, encapsulated by the concept of “Sarvajnaya Swasthya.”
Celebrated on the birth anniversary of Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, the World Homoeopathy Day traditionally falls on April 10th. This year, the decision was made to extend the celebrations across the country, organizing events in four different zones.
During his inaugural address, Dr. Munjapara praised the clinical effectiveness of homeopathy and the ongoing research efforts in this field. He highlighted the significant advancements taking place in all Ayush systems. The Ministry of Ayush is actively supporting infrastructure development, human resource enhancement, drug development, and the creation of Ayush resources based on research and best practices.
Dr. Munjapara emphasized the need to compile clinical and research evidence in favor of homeopathy, presenting it to the global community. West Bengal, the birthplace of homeopathy in India, plays a pivotal role in the development and spread of this medical system throughout the country.
This initiative paves the way for India to establish itself as a global leader in homeopathic education, practice, and research, emphasizing a commitment to ensuring that all treatments and approaches are grounded in high-quality, evidence-based parameters.
