These examples illustrated the high efficiency of homeopathic medicines in the treatment of various pathologies, especially, of chronic, non-communicable diseases, oncology, surgical diseases of adults and children and so on. Results of pilot and large clinical investigations were presented. .
Uncontrolled and unjustified use of antibiotics increases the resistance of microorganisms, and population allergisation. This circumstance is recognized by the medical and veterinary community and points to the need for a new scientific approach in the treatment and prevention of infections. In this regard, members of Congress agreed on the options of combined therapy with the use of homeopathic medicines or homeopathic ways of treatment and prevention of various diseases. The results of presented studies showed that homeopathy is an effective method of treating human and animal diseases, including those almost impossible to treat.

In the section for the phenomena of homeopathy study great interest was aroused by the presentations on the mechanisms of homeopathic influence. The speakers disclosed new scientific ideas about the properties of high diluted and potentiated solutions/ Such position was based on their biophysical effects on the regulation of biochemical processes in biological systems. Experimental studies (pre – and post-conditioning) were performed on a variety of models and allowed to reveal new scientific aspects in the realisation of homeopathic effects and to ensure indisputable results. Theoretical studies and experiments on model systems have confirmed existing clinical homeopathy patterns created scientific basis for further scientific researches in this section pharmacology.
The section on the use of homeopathy in veterinary medicine was of a great interest. Speakers speaking on examples of treatment of animals of different species showed the practical effectiveness and promising application of homeopathic medicines.

Assessing the entirety of the presentations and evidence presented, the participants of the Congress unanimously resolved:
- There is a need to continue national and international researches on the fundamentals of homeopathy, using all possibilities of modern science. To recommend to the manufacturers of homeopathic drugs to create the international Fund for grant funding of fundamental scientific research in homeopathy.
- Congress noted the high level of development of homoeopathy in India, the broad use of it in rendering assistance to the population, the consolidated nature of the relationship between the different fields of medicine that should be used as a positive example of health organization at the state level.
- Congress finds it appropriate to include the exchange of homeopathic experience as a part in the States-participants of the SCO and BRICS in the international health development program.

- Congress proposes to develop a program of wide introduction of homeopathy in the system of farm and agriculture, as well as improvement of legal regulation of the industry.
