Follow this EDM by:


That this House notes that the Science and Technology Committee's Evidence Check on Homeopathy report failed to take note that, in India, homeopathy can be traced back as early as 1810 and is an integral part of the health system; recognises that the homeopathic hospitals in Calcutta were famous for the treatment of intractable diseases and were successful in controlling epidemics such as cholera; observes that India has over 180 colleges teaching homeopathic medicine and over 300,000 homeopathic practitioners; further notes that homeopathy has gained substantial governmental patronage, has a vast infrastructure and is one of the medical systems recognised by the Government of India; welcomes the fact that in 2002 a new National Policy on Indian Systems of Medicine and Homeopathy led to the establishment in 2003 of a Department of Ayurveda, Siddha, Unani, Yoga and Naturopathy and Homeopathy (AYUSH); and calls on the Government to look at the experiences of other countries when formulating health policy in the UK.
