As part of NHMRC’s role to ensure that Australians receive the best available, evidence-based and reliable health advice, NHMRC is examining the effectiveness of homeopathy in the treatment of clinical conditions in humans.
As part of this work, NHMRC is currently seeking feedback on the draft Information Paper: Evidence on the effectiveness of homeopathy for treating health conditions, which provides a plain language summary of NHMRC’s assessment of the evidence on homeopathy.

Conclusion of the report prepared by NHMRC Homeopathy Working Committee
There is a paucity of good-quality studies of sufficient size that examine the effectiveness of homeopathy as a treatment for any clinical condition in humans. The available evidence is not compelling and fails to demonstrate that homeopathy is an effective treatment for any of the reported clinical conditions in humans.
The NHMRC assessment of the evidence comprises:
Effectiveness of Homeopathy for Clinical Conditions: Evaluation of the Evidence – Overview Report. This is an independent systematic review of the available systematic reviews (an overview) on the effectiveness of homeopathy in treating a variety of clinical conditions in humans. The overview was commissioned by NHMRC and conducted by Optum.
Effectiveness of Homeopathy for Clinical Conditions: Evaluation of the Evidence – Review of Submitted Literature. Additional evidence was submitted to NHMRC from homeopathy stakeholder groups and members of the public prior to the commencement of the review.
The purpose of public consultation is to ensure that that the relevant evidence has been identified and appropriately considered in the development of the draft Paper. NHMRC is also seeking feedback about whether the draft Paper is presented in a manner that can be understood by the Australian community.
You are invited to make a submission to NHMRC by providing your comments on the NHMRC draft Information Paper and submitting any additional evidence for consideration. NHMRC will only give consideration to submissions that address the public consultation questions, are within the scope of the review, and meet the criteria regarding evidence discussed below.
PLEASE NOTE THAT EMAIL SUBMISSIONS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED.

Note : The assessment arrived at by the NHMRC is evaluated by medical Doctors and PhD’s based in Allopathic disciplines. No Homeopathic researchers or scholars are involved and so obviously the conclusions will be biased as the Homeopathic process will not be understood.
