Homeopathy in Uruguay 2013

There are two homeopathic Associations in Uruguay: The Association of Homeopathic Medicine of Uruguay (AMHU) and the Hahnemann Homeopathic Medical School of Uruguay (EMHHU). They carry out regular courses of homeopathic formation for doctors and veterinarians of three years duration. The AMHU holds a monthly symposium and provides polyclinic assistance for low-income people. Homeopathy in Uruguay is developed mainly in the private environment. Homeopathic medicines are legally recognized by the health authorities of the country since 2009. One of the objectives of our Associations is the integration of homeopathy in the teaching in the university. Coming closer to this objective, we have held conversations with the Ministry of Public Health with the aim that homeopathy will be recognized as a specialty.
