Country Report

The Fundación Médica Homeopática Costarricense (FMHC) has worked since 1986 on a project to integrate homeopathy into the public health services. Between 1986-1999, it worked principally in the medical dissemination of homeopathic medicine in the National Medical Congresses. We had detected an increasing interest in homeopathy by lay people, students, and health professionals. Since the year 2000, the National Recertification Medical Committee accepted the FMHC as a homeopathic continuing medical education entity. Twenty-nine physicians and three nurses completed a three-year program of “Homeopathy in General Medicine” in 2007. Currently, one social security clinic is interested in homeopathy and is evaluating the experience of homeopathic consultation in the educational program to decide how to integrate homeopathy in medical services.
