Homeopathy in Greece | Cam-Regulation

Homeopathy in Greece

There is no specific regulation on homeopathy within health care in Greece (28, 41).

Medical doctors are allowed to practise homeopathy as a part of their medical profession (28). The profession of homeopathy is mentioned in legislation for labour and employment under the Ministry of Trade/Economics (41).

Non-medical practitioners of homeopathy may practise under legislation of labour registered within the Ministry of Economics (50). Postgraduate training in homeopathy for doctors is provided at universities in Greece (106).

The Hellenic Homeopathic Medical Society (H.H.M.S.) supports homeopathy in Greece. The association is a member of the European Committee for Homeopathy (ECH)(28). Various homeopathic associations support homeopathic practitioners in Greece.
