Cost-effectiveness of homeopathy – several scientific studies have investigated this subject. In this ninth issue of our “Study Highlights series”, we present a recently published systematic review which provides an up-to-date overview of the cost-effectiveness of homeopathy. This review found that homeopathy showed similar or better clinical effectiveness compared to the control groups in 21 included studies, with a positive trend for cost-effectiveness. Further high quality research on this topic is therefore warranted: building on these encouraging findings will determine more definitively whether homeopathy can play a role in managing healthcare costs in future, whilst maintaining levels of clinical effectiveness comparable to existing treatments.
