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The AHA and its partners in the complementary health sector are continuing to lobby in an effort to have the report withdrawn and restore standards of accountability, impartiality and ethical conduct in government processes relating to complementary medicine.

Abha Light Foundation
In 1998, homoeopathy was practically unknown in Kenya. Since the late '90s and from small beginnings Abha Light Foundation (ALF) has become a growing infrastructure of professional homoeopaths and alternative medicine practitioners for the benefit of the people of Kenya and Africa.
ALF aims to create a permanent infrastructure for the establishment of homoeopathy and complementary medicine in Kenya and educate traditional healers in modern sciences.
ALF trains Kenyan practitioners and helps to establish their independent clinics around the country. These affiliated clinics serve the communities through affordable, accessible and natural medicine.
