Homeopathy in Singapore
The Singapore Government recognizes homeopathy as an alternative medical practice. There is no legislation controlling alternative medicine directly or registering practitioners. Practitioners are expected to keep within their area of practice, otherwise, they would be contravening the Medical Registration Act.
Several people in Singapore have recent BHMS degrees from India, but they are not organized. Several "mixopaths" run "homeopathic centers" since these can be registered as a business. There are no colleges or journals, but health magazines do carry articles about homeopathy.
Conventional physicians are registered with the Ministry of Health, but none practice homeopathy. The Registered Professional Homoeopathy Association, Singapore (RPHAS) was founded in 1992, and has approval from two prominent Government foundations, The Registry of Societies and the Ministry of Health.
Some homeopathic practitioners are registered under this body and hence are issued Certificate of Registration and Certification of Membership. They can use "RPHAS" after their name. There are about 20 such homeopaths in Singapore.
