World Integrated Medicine Forum 2019

  1. Union Ministry for AYUSH will inaugurate the 2nd World Integrated Medicine Forum 2019 on the ‘Regulation of Homeopathic Medical Products; Advancing global collaboration’.
  2. The organizers of the forum are the Central Council for Research in Homeopathy, under the Ministry of AYUSH.
  3. International drug regulators dealing with homeopathic/traditional medicines from various countries are expected to participate.

Aims and Objectives

  1. The regulation of homeopathic medicinal products is highly variable worldwide, ranging at a national level from highly advanced to none whatsoever.
  2. There is a tension between different regulatory needs: on the one hand there is a need for standardization, harmonization and reducing complexity;
  3. On the other hand there is need for a pluralistic regulatory system, which respects the specific characteristics of homeopathy as a holistic, patient-centred medical system.
  4. The forum will explore and illustrate the potential benefits and pitfalls of bi-lateral/multilateral collaboration and advance global cooperation on a synergistic basis.
