Status of Homeopathy in Bangladesh
Since the British period, homeopathy has been spread in the Indian sub-continent. For about 100 years, homeopathy is existing in this sub-continent. Since Bangladesh became independent in 1971, an undertermined number of homeopathic doctors has been rendering homeopathic treatment dedicating themselves to the service of patients.
A Homeopathy Act was passed before the liberation of Bangladesh and the Homeopathy Ordinance was passed in 1983. In 1972, a Homeopathy Board was established. There are more than 41 Homeopathic Medical Colleges in Bangladesh and every year, a lot of homeopathic doctors taking DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery) and BHMS degree are being engaged in this profession. About 30 - 40 percent of the population in developing countries like Bangladesh take homeopathic treatment.
