In March 2015 Australia’s National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) released a report that concluded ‘there is no reliable evidence that homoeopathy is effective in treating health conditions.’ This report has received widespread media coverage to falsely claim 'there is no evidence that homeopathy works.'
The impact of a review by a respected institution such as the NHMRC cannot be overstated: the general public, health practitioners, decision-makers and other researchers all rely on those findings.
The NHMRC report is being cited as credible evidence and used by anti-homoeopathy sceptics (such as Friends of Science in Medicine) to lobby government to erode Australians’ right of choice to access homoeopathic practitioner services, products and education. This pressure is real and on-going.
What's being done:
The AHA and its partners in the complementary health sector are continuing to lobby in an effort to have the report withdrawn and restore standards of accountability, impartiality and ethical conduct in government processes relating to complementary medicine.
