Homeopathy in Slovakia | Cam-Regulation

Homeopathy in Slovakia

There is no statutory regulation of homeopathy in Slovakia (28, 106).

Obligatory Continuing Medical Education (CME) is required for the members of the national homeopathic doctors’ association (106).

Practising homeopathy is not forbidden by law and therefore according to the Slovak Constitution it can be practised by anybody. On the other hand, when you do so and harm an individual you can be punished according to the Penal Code – Act No. 300/2005 Coll., §162 Damage to health.
