The International Homeopathy Day (IHD) will take place for the third time, it was initiated in 2010 and was then held for the first time in Slovenia, in 2011 the IHD was ccelebrated in Croatia, and in 2012 in Turkey. The personal presence of executive LMHI representatives and their political support for "younger" associations in homeopathically growing countries has proven a powerful and important tool. The LMHI officials have repeatedly noted that the respect from the government towards these associations increases in their presence. The LMHI states that "In these projects, the LMHI fullfills really its purpose of developing and securing homeopathy worldwide - as stipulated in its statutes".
