DOHA: Qatar may soon have more facilities and practitioners offering alternative medicine as the Supreme Council of Health (SCH) is working on a comprehensive policy to organise and regulate this important sector.
"There is a need for alternative medicine in the country and we must address that need in a safe way. We must ensure that fraudsters don't enter the market in the name of alternative medicine. This calls for strict supervision as well as standards and regulations to organise and monitor the sector," added Al Khanji.
He said the department had already granted permission to a few private facilities to offer alternative medicine, including homeopathy, and was ready to consider more applications from qualified practitioners operating in this field.
