The controversial use of animals in homeopathy research has come to the fore in the past year and the Society's board of directors are giving members an opportunity to thoroughly debate the issue, before finalising the organisations policy in June 2016.
In autumn 2015 we launched a debate to provide members with background information from people from all sides of the topic regarding the use of data from animal research in the field of homeopathy.
Our current research policy does not condone or advocate the harming of animals used in research into homeopathic medicine. On very rare occasions where necessary, we currently reserve the right to use, discuss and disseminate animal based research in communications and general work in such a way that respects the sensitivity of our membership on this issue. Our policy is in line with European regulations which state that wherever possible, a scientifically satisfactory method of testing strategy not entailing the use of live animals shall be used.
