Some Reflections About the Interest of Non-conventional Medicine in Public Health, Especially Homeopathy
The use of non-conventional medicine in developing countries has been a challenge for many medical doctors during the last 20 years; among them, the “Homeopaths Without Borders” (HWB). Therefore, to think about the interest of this special form of medicine, called non-conventional medicine, in public health is inevitable.
One first shall give some prior definitions of the working field: what is nonconventional medicine and what is public health?
NON-CONVENTIONAL MEDICINE refers to the use of methods of treatment which have not been validated by the dominant scientific community.
PUBLIC HEALTH refers to the health condition of a community of human beings: in a town, in a country, on earth.
