Around 200 homeopathic practitioners, educationists and researchers from across the country participated in the event.
- To find ways to bring homeopathy in to the mainstream for the people of India.
- To provide momentum to various policies of the central and state governments so that this field of medicine can be spread widely into masses.
An important discussion in the conference was on how the government can focus more upon Homeopathy.
The discussions in the conference focused upon various aspects of Homeopathy as a field of medicine and also on upgrading the teaching methodology.

Homeopathy is effective in preventing many communicable diseases, such as dengue, chikungunia, swine flu, measles, chickenpox, etc. It is also effective in treating both acute and chronic diseases. The conference also included sessions on how and what to suggest to the government so that Homeopathy can be brought into mainstream and schemes such as national health mission and others can include Homeopathy in a massive way.
