Status of Homeopathy in Brazil
The situation of Homeopathy in Brazil is undergoing an expansion process and it is now definitely a part of the Brazilian Health Public System, thus providing significant sustainable support to the PNPIC - National Policy for the Integrative and Complementary Practices within the SUS - Brazilian Unique Health System. Such results were achieved through significant contributions given by all colleagues working for the public health system in our country. The NVP for Brazil wishes publicly to thank these professionals as well as continue to offer our collaboration.
Homeopathy has been recognized as a medical specialty since 1980. Now the specialties of Homeopathic Pharmacy, Dentistry and Veterinary Medicine are also recognized. The Brazilian Homeopathic Medical Association is active in 16 Brazilian states. Currently, there are 20 training courses in homeopathy recognized by our National Association training entity that coordinates with the national entity. We have a regular physician National Congress every two years. Dentistry and veterinary congresses are held congruently with medical congresses, but homeopathic pharmacy has a separate congress. Various areas of Brazil hold regional meetings annually. Currently, there is a National Program Implementation Ministry of Health of Homeopathy and other unconventional practices, but with difficulties in its implementation.
