In Argentina, an estimated 3000 physicians and 500 pharmacists practise homeopathic medicine (53). There are three practising chiropractors (45). Some kinesiologists are also members of the chiropractic association (82).
Traditional medicine is regulated by Article 75-17 of the Constitution, Ley 23.302, Decreto 1269-96, and Resolution 83-94 (82). Only professionally qualified doctors who have graduated from recognized medical schools may legally practise homeopathy. In November 1997, the Chamber of Deputies of Cordoba Province regulated the prescription of homeopathic medications (53). There is no chiropractic law.
Education and training
There are seven homeopathic schools offering regular three-year degree programmes as well as intensive programmes (53). A chiropractic college is being established (82).
