Addressing the Homoeopathic conference organised as part of the Silver Jubilee celebations of Father Muller Homoeopathic Medical College at its campus in Deralakatte near here on Saturday, Rudresh said that young graduates should open dispensaries in rural areas and serve the poor. “There is a need to give more emphasis to Homoeopathy that the government should open more dispensaries in the State. We have submitted a recommendation to the State government to open Homoeopathic dispensaries in all the 175 taluks,” he added.

He pointed out that the budget allocation for health and medical education sector in India is comparatively very less in India. The Government should increase the budget allocation on par with other developing nations in the world, he added.

Talking about the scientific and technological revolutions in the medical field, Rudresh lamented that the poor people are being cheated in the name science. Costly diagnostic techniques are being imposed on poor patients, even though they are not capable of affording it, he added. Delivering the inaugural address, Indian System of Medicine and Homoeopathy Director G N Sreekantaiah said that Homoeopathy is the safe, effective and affordable system of medicine. Health care can be made affordable to poor in the villages through Homoeopathy, he said. “Homoeopathy is such a miraculous system of medicine that even some of the diseases, which require surgery in Allopathy, can be cured only with medicines,” he added.

College Administrator Fr Wilfred Prakash D’Souza, Principal Dr Srinath Rao, Organising Secretaries Dr Shivaprasad and Dr Girish Navada were present.
