Currently, the increasing expansion of Alternative healthcare facilities in Ghana at both regional and districts levels, with a corresponding increased demand for Qualified Homeopathic Medical Personnel continues to affect the health service delivery system in Ghana.

Development in the homeopathic medical practice throughout the world demand corresponding strategic overhaul in the training of the homeopathic medical practitioner in the 21st century. With the rapid advancements of Homeopathic Pharmaceuticals Worldwide, the need has arisen to train students to meet current demands and challenges.

During the period between the 1950s and 1980s the efficiency and competency of conventional medicine seemed to have been unlimited in the World. Incredible technical progress raised the expectation that sooner or later it would cope with any disease, and the finding of adequate cures was just a question of time. Today, this optimism has partially disappeared and has been substituted by harsh criticism and decreasing acceptance triggered by the publicly debated adverse side effects, the impersonality of its machine-based treatments, its lack of a more holistic approach towards the human body, and its high cost. The fact that an increasing number of patients turn to Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) in search of a better, additional or more adequate treatment, can be interpreted as an indication that the ‘golden age’ of conventional medicine has either come to an end or fast reaching that point. Although it still dominates the public healthcare system, its hegemonic position is challenged and questioned by various therapeutic systems with their concepts of health, illness and healing.
Within the spectrum of the various therapies offered in today’s pluralistic medical markets, homeopathy occupies a prominent place. Not only does this medical system look back upon a history of more than 200 years, but also enjoys a steadily increasing number of users and supporters among Ghanaians, Europeans and the world at large.
