Recent Accomplishments

Recent Accomplishments

IHRC played an important role in the control of viral fever epidemics in Kerala in recent years. Timely intervention in the form early case identification, case studies and finding genus epidemcius from IHRC and IHMA had helped to curtail many unnecessary morbidity and mortality.

In other states too IHRC provides timely advice to seasonal diseases and other epidemic outbreaks.

One important project of IHRC was the Retrospective Study on the Efficacy of Preventive Medicines in Chickunguniya (in the Kerala outbreak) conducted in association with the community medicine department of Government Homoeopathic Medical College, Thiruvananthapuram. The results and suggestions were submitted before the Honourable Minister for Health and Family Welfare for Kerala at the venue of 3rd annual conference of IHMA Kerala state.

We have conducted a two day’s research work shop in 2007 that was widely appreciated as the most modern and cost effective event in Homoeopathic Research till now. The fruits of that work shop are already started unfolding.


Forthcoming projects

IHRC is planning a few milestone activities in the field of Homoeopathic Research. Case control studies, Double Blind Clinical Trials, Publication of Homoeopathic Research, Activities aiming at Standardisation of Homoeopathy are a few of them. IHRC is also planning to conduct more workshops and seminars in the coming years.
