The World Homeopathy Awareness Organization (WHAO) was founded in 2005 to celebrate the 250th anniversary of the birth of Samuel Hahnemann (April 10, 1755), the founder of homeopathy. Our primary goals are to co-ordinate increased public awareness of homeopathy around the world and to improve accessibility to homeopathic remedies and qualified homeopathic treatment.
WHAO brings together representatives from each member country to work together to organize homeopathy awareness opportunities, to share ideas and resources, and to promote accurate information about homeopathy and its availability in each country.
Our member organizations around the world hold free public events, such as lectures, seminars, meet & greets, information sessions, and free or reduced-price clinics for first-aid and acute prescribing. They also organize media interviews, press releases, and social media postings with current and historical information about homeopathy.
WHAO provides several opportunities for our member countries to celebrate homeopathy awareness. They are:
- April 10: World Homeopathy Awareness Day to mark the birth of Samuel Hahnemann
- April 10 – 16: World Homeopathy Awareness Week to increase public awareness of the benefits of homeopathy;
- April 1 – 30: World Homeopathy Awareness Month to offer many opportunities to promote wider understanding and appreciation for homeopathy;
- Throughout the year: Homeopathy Awareness opportunities presented by each organization and its members to highlight the homeopathic association with specific days or events (such as asthma awareness or Homeopaths Without Borders).
