The national capital will host first-of-its-kind forum on February 23 to change the perception of the international community towards India as a key player in the progress of the homoeopathy drug industry.
‘The World Integrated Medicine Forum on Regulation of Homeopathic Medicinal Products: National and Global Strategies’ will be inaugurated by Minister of State (Independent Charge) for AYUSH Shripad Yesso Naik, the AAYUSH Ministry said.
“Drug lawmakers, regulators, manufacturers and pharmacopeial experts from various regulatory authorities, eminent scientific organisations and pharmaceutical industries from 25 countries, are participating in the two days forum to strategise the actionable aspects in the homoeopathic drug industry, which, in turn, will promote global harmonisation in the sector,” the ministry said in a statement.
In India, homoeopathic medicines are regulated by Drugs & Cosmetics Act & Rules. All pharmaceutical industries are legally bound to comply with these rules, which, in turn, assures safety and quality of homoeopathic medicines.
The event is organised by the Ministry of AYUSH and Central Council for Research in Homeopathy (CCRH) and supported by Pharmacopoeia Commission for Indian Medicine & Homoeopathy (PCIMH) and Central Drugs Standard Control Organisation (CDSCO).
