First Homeopathy University coming up in Jaipur

The state capital will soon have the first Homeopathy University of the country.

The Homeopathy University Jaipur Bill 2010 was passed by the Rajasthan Assembly here today by a voice vote to facilitate setting up of the versity, which was hailed by members and Higher Education Minister Jitendra Singh, as the first Homeopathy University of the world.

The Bill was brought and passed to replace the ordinance promulgated by the state government for the purpose in October last year.

Dr MP Khunteta Homeopathy Medical College and Research Society would run the varsity, the Minister said.

More awareness about Homeopathy stressed
Homeopathic remedies can be most beneficial and affordable for mother and child care both in rural and urban areas, opined experts at a workshop held in the city on Tuesday.

The workshop was organised by the Central Council for Research in Homeopathy as part of the campaign to popularise homeopathy for mother and child care. The workshop was attended by AYUSH doctors, homeopathic doctors and NGO representatives working in rural areas. Berhampur MLA Ramesh Chandra Chyau Patnaik, who is a practicing allopathic physician, attended the workshop as a guest. The resource persons included member of the CCRH, L.K. Nanda, former principal of the Biju Patnaik homeopathy college in the city, Annada Prasad Sarangi.

Mr. Chyau Patnaik said there was extreme need of exchange and orientation of knowledge among homoeopathic, allopathic and other physicians who are involved in the mother and child care in rural areas. He opined that homoeopathy treatment was highly beneficial for many diseases related to women and children. Homoeopathy medicines can be safely administered for various ailments throughout pregnancy without any adverse reaction, said the experts.

As per Mr. Sarangi, homoeopathy medicines can be used during childbirth to reduce problems associated with labour. It was also effective for post delivery and lactation problems.

It was also added that homeopathy medicines in the form of sweet pills were child friendly.
But it was also felt that there was limited awareness among policy makers, social workers and modern health professionals about the potential homoeopathy to improve the health status of women and children.

Focus on coordination

It was felt that a link has to be established among the research institutions, NGOs and key persons of society to disseminate the knowledge of efficacy of homoeopathy in addressing the health issues pertaining to mothers and child care.

Several participants said there should be better coordination between practitioners of different streams of medicine for better promotion of mother and child health care so that they can advise their patients to avail the services of homoeopathy in the conditions where some therapy may be contra-indicated or found to be having limitations.

Fewer hospitals

There are only 525 government homoeopathy dispensaries and 31 government hospitals in the State compared to more than 1,000 Ayurveda dispensaries and more than 110 hospitals.
The association secretary Pradeep Kumar said that many posts which have fallen vacant have not been filled. This affects the promotion of all the doctors in the rank list. Out of the posts for 14 district medical officers, six are vacant — with no DMOs for Thrissur, Palakkad, Malappuram, Kozhikode, Kasargod and Pathanamthitta districts.

There are 10 vacant posts of chief medical officers — one each in Idukki, Thrissur, Palakkad, Malappuram and two each in Kozhikode, Wayanad and Kasargod. There are 31 hospitals but only six superintendents, the rest have not been filled. As the Department Promotion Committee (DPC) meetings are not held regularly, the posts are not filled, the representative of association alleged.

While ESI services are available in all districts, there are only 12 ESI dispensaries for homoeopathy.
Most of the proposals of the homoeopathy directorate are not sanctioned by the Finance department, allege the homoeo medical officers. While admitting that there are a number of posts vacant in the department, Sunny Jacob, director, Homoeopathy Directorate, said that since the new rules were made applicable in 1999, a seniority list needed to be prepared before the DPC meetings are held.
