Homeopathy is since 1997 recognized by law as a distinct therapeutic specialty in Latvia,
with regulation and supervision delegated to the Latvian Homeopathic Medical Association.

Only medical doctors may practise homeopathy, and the medical by-law recognized
homeopathy as a medical specialty in 1998 (106, 182). The national homeopathic doctors’
association issues diplomas recognized by the national medical council in Latvia.

CME (continuous medical education) is obligatory for all homeopathic doctors (106). Since 1988, the Latvian medical association granted medical doctors the right to add the title “homeopath” if they have more than 4 years of practical experience (41).
