|IIHP was first formalized in the name of all India institute of
Homoeopaths in 1944 by a team of dedicated stalwarts such as Dr. M.
Gururaju, Dr. A. N. Mukharjee, Dr. Diwan Jaichand,
Dr. Daya Shankar, Dr. J. P. Srivasthava, Dr. S. P. Asthana and Dr.
K. G. Saxena as the Founder Secretary General.
Padmasri Dr. K. G. Saxena was chief instrumental
in the recognition and development of Homoeopathy in India. He burnt
his life as a candle to shine forth the bright light to Homoeopathy
and qualified Homoeopathic brethren in particular, by sacrificing
all his time, money and energy. We owe him a great deal for
having initiated the institute, for having made the government to
form the famous joint parliamentary committee in 1949 with scientists
from different disciplines. This committee in turn gave a favorable
report and the government finally recognized the system of Homoeopathy
as a scientific one. His other achievements in the name of the Institute
include formation of Ad-hoc committee, family planning committee
etc. initiation of Central Council of Homoeopathy, Central
Council for Research in Homoeopathy, National Institute of Homoeopathy,
Drug standardization Unit at Gaziabad, and institution of various
CGHS Homoeopathic Dispensaries. In turn various state governments
recognized Homoeopathy and started Homoeopathic Medical Colleges
and Hospital as well.
