New Delhi: In an attempt to bring "homoeopathy" in mainstream of public health care, 2,500 doctors from 70 countries are expected to participate in an international conference here to explore homoeopathic solution to challenges such as H1N1 outbreak.

The capital will host the 66th World Homoeopathic Congress for four days beginning December one. The theme of the conference will be 'Homoeopathy for the Public Health'.

The Congress aims at exploring homoeopathic solution to emerging as well as challenging epidemics ranging from H1N1 to other pandemics like dengue and chikunguniya, Dr RK Manchanda, organising secretary of conference, told reporters.

More than 2,500 homoeopaths and 70 countries would participate in the conference this year, Dr Ramjee Singh, the president of the conference, said.

"In the era of new pandemics, epidemics, drug reactions and drug resistance, Homoeopathy has come up as a bankable solution for many," Manchanda said.

The issues that would come up for the discussion include dengue, chikunguniya, pain management during child birth, HIV and AIDS related cases, epilepsy in children and mother and child health, he said.

"India has emerged as the latest hub of Homoeopathic activities in the world.... The credit goes to the hard work of Indian Homoeopaths, pro-active association and the Indian Government's support," another organiser Dr SPS Bakshi said.
