Stamp Information : World Homoeopathic Conventions and Congress have been held since 1876. India is having the honour for the second time to host the International Homoeopathic Congress. The previous Congress in India was held in 1967. About 2,000 experts in Homoeopathy from the world over are expected to participate in the present Congress, which ill be mainly devoted to a discussion of homoeopathy in pediatrics, heart desease, cancer and its sphere in dentristy and veterinary medicine. The Congress will also review the progress made in regard to research carried out since its last session. Dr. Samuel Hahenemann of Germany was the founder of Homoeopathy. He hit upon this while conducting some experiments with cinchon bark in 1790. The first experiments in this connection were published in 1796. With increasing popularity of this system of medicine and the consequent international collaboration, the International Homeopathic League was founded in 1925 with permanent headquarters at Geneva. With patronage from the people and recognition from the Government, India is now one of the leading countries in Homoeopathy. The current session of the Congress will highlight the important role this system of medicine could play in India. Homoeopathy may effectively answer the need for providing cheap medical aid to our vast rural masses. The Indian Posts and Telegraphs Department is happy to bring out a commemorative postage stamp to mark the XXXII International Homoeopathic Congress being held in New Delhi from October 6-11, 1977.
