25 new homoeo dispensaries in Kerala soon

The Kerala State will have 25 new homoeopathic dispensaries shortly, Finance Minister T.M. Thomas Isaac said here on Sunday.

Delivering the presidential address at the foundation stone-laying ceremony of a new factory being constructed as part of the Rs.19.67-crore second-phase of the restructuring of the State Homoeopathic Cooperative Pharmacy (Homco), Dr. Isaac said talks were on with Housing Board officials for land for a homeopathic pharmacy college that would function under the aegis of Homco.

The pharmacy college and the research intended to be taken up there would enable Homco to produce drugs valued at Rs.20 crore annually, thus making it the biggest homoeopathic drug production public sector unit in the country, the Minister said, adding that 2,550 new personnel would be recruited shortly to public sector units in the State.

The new factory of Homco would be completed in 18 months and would offer direct employment to 120 persons, he added.

Health Minister P.K. Sreemathy laid the foundation stone for the factory.

Homoeopathy State director and Homco chairperson K. Jamuna, district panchayat president Prathiba Hari were among those who spoke.



  1. Hello,
    Great program, yhis should make the molecules 's adicts thinking. India is the leading country in homoeopathy, this century main medicine for virus, orphan illness in top of all others. Sales of 200 millions Rp or around 5 mio US$ (low indian cossts) it is great, it may correspond to 200 or 400 mio US$ in real terms, or huge competitor to Boiron if not similar size!
