New Delhi hosts two-day scientific convention on 'Innovate; Evolve; Progress: Exploring Science since 40 years' to mark World Homoeopathy Day
Inaugurated by Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu, a two-day scientific convention in New Delhi, on 10th and 11th April 2018, is being organised by Ministry of AYUSH on the occasion of World Homoeopathy Day. The theme of this convention is "Innovate; Evolve; Progress: Exploring Science since 40 years".

The Central Council for Research in Homeopathy (CCRH) is coordinating the convention to pay tributes to Dr Hahnemann, on his 263nd birth anniversary. As we know that the World Homoeopathy Day is observed to commemorate the birth anniversary of the founder of homoeopathy Dr Christian Friedrich Samuel Hahnemann.

"The delegates at the convention would include homoeopathic researchers, practitioners, students, industrialists as we all as representatives of various homoeopathic associations. Many reputed scientists and veterans of homoeopathy will be the speakers at the event. Scientists from other allied sciences will also present their findings related to studies on Homoeopathy," stated an official release. 

It added, "The Council's research activities during last 40 years have yielded reassuring results and carved out a future roadmap for the scientists working in the field of Homoeopathy. These will be showcased in an exclusive Exhibition to the delegates during the convention. 168 clinical researches, 40 basic researches, standardization studies of 348 drugs, proving of 112 drugs and clinical verification of 106 drugs have so far been accomplished by Council in the last 40 years. 55 Research proposals sanctioned under Extra-Mural Research Scheme were technically monitored. "

"Studies on 5 epidemic diseases, namely dengue, malaria, chikungunya, influenza-like illness and Acute Encephalitis Syndrome (AES) have been undertaken, and new studies in these diseases, as well as in other epidemic diseases are planned. Council has also initiated the Short Term Studentship in Homoeopathy (STSH) Program with the vision to inculcate research aptitude among homeopathic undergraduates, under which 52 students have been awarded scholarships," the release read. 

According to the release, as a step forward, this year, Council is signing MoUs with PG Homoeopathic Colleges on this World Homoeopathy Day to support development of research infrastructure in an effort to link education with research. The vision behind the agreement would be to provide impetus to research infrastructure, which, in turn further orient the students towards research.
