Kenya School for Integrated Medicine
Around nine years ago, a Dutch homeopath moved to Kenya and decided to open a homeopathy school, the first of its kind in Kenya and most of Africa. The school is now offering a four year diploma program in homeopathy and also Nutrition and Community Health programs.
Since 2015, the school has been in partnership with the local Ministry of Health to support public health initiatives in the country through the inclusion of Integrated Medicine. Therefore, our programs are steered toward graduates of the school working in the community, and we are starting new homeopathic clinics in areas where there is a need for extra medical services. We are also supporting local community health units and are planning to develop a digital health information system to support data collection and health policy. This last innovation is on the cutting edge of developing more accurate health information systems in various parts of the world. This partnership and the whole project is being sponsored by the European Union as part of eight world-wide public health projects.
For homeopathy and our school to be accepted and included as part of an European Union project and for us to directly partner with the Ministry of Health in our country is a major achievement and a very exciting development for homeopathy. Part of the overall aim of the project is to get homeopathy fully accepted and regulated on a national level so that trained homeopaths can work in government hospitals and clinics. A new health bill of 2015 has included Complementary and Alternative Medicines as part of its goal but it still needs to be fully implemented. In the meantime, we are moving ahead in our country and bringing homeopathy to as many people as possible.
In January we are starting a new homeopathy program and will be also completing our nutrition program and community health program before we take another group of students in May 2017.
