At present, the infectious diseases have posed serious health problems globally and have become a challenge to the policymakers; health-care providers and researchers of all medical streams, including Homoeopathy. In this context, the publication of this book has become quite relevant.

The book aims at providing a comprehensive view of the recent trends in the management of infectious diseases through Homoeopathy. This handbook explores the major scientific evidences of Homoeopathy for controlling infectious diseases due to viruses, bacteria, fungi, and parasites. It also documents the recent publications on control of infectious diseases through Homoeopathy, which have shown positive effects. It will be a rich source for the literature review by the research workers in the future.

The book is arranged in fourteen chapters. The chapters three, four, and five highlight the basic principles and research scenario of Homoeopathy. The chapters six, seven, eight, and nine provide valuable information about various researches conducted in Homoeopathy in certain bacterial, fungal, parasitic and viral diseases. Subsequent three chapters deal with the future perspective and scope of Homoeopathy in the field of infectious diseases and how Homoeopathy can be integrated with the mainstream healthcare. The chapters have been well-written fulfilling the basic criteria of planning, conducting and analysing research studies.

The book will be useful for the research scholars who are aspiring to conduct evidence-based research in the field of infectious diseases. Besides, the postgraduate students, PhD scholars, clinicians and researchers of homoeopathy and allied medical streams will also benefit out of it.
