Since then the company has successfully treated over 1.5 million patients with a success rate of 91% as authenticated by American Quality Assessors. Today, Dr Batra’s Multi-Specialty Homeopathy is the world’s largest chain of homoeopathic clinics with a network of over 225 super-speciality clinics spread across 133 cities in India, UK, UAE, Bahrain and Bangladesh.
Commenting on the launch of the 10th international clinic, Dr Mukesh Batra, Padma Shri recipient and Chairman Emeritus, Dr Batra’s Group of Companies, said, “We have seen a steady rise in the demand for homoeopathy internationally in the past few years. With more patients looking for holistic healthcare options, we are delighted to announce our foray into Abu Dhabi, which takes our total clinic count to six in UAE.”
Commenting on the brand’s expansion plans into the region, he further added, “We are currently located in 5 countries and have 10 international clinics including the UK including a clinic in Harley Street; Dubai including a clinic at the Dubai Health Care City (DHCC); in Bahrain including a clinic at the KIIMS Bahrain Medical Center (KBMC); in Bangladesh – Dhaka; and now Abu Dhabi.

Homoeopathy, the 2nd largest system of medicine in the world, according to WHO, is practised in 86 countries and is consumed by over 200 million people the world over. According to the Market Research Future report, the global homoeopathy market is expected to reach USD 31459.6 million by 2023 at a CAGR of 14.60%. It is practised in 86 countries.
France is the largest contributor to the homoeopathy market, followed by Germany. More than a third of French people use homoeopathic medicines. As many as 70 per cent of physicians in France are receptive to homoeopathy and consider it effective while at least 25,000 physicians prescribe homoeopathic medicines for their patients.
Homoeopathy also enjoys royal patronage in the UK. The British Royal Family has been under homoeopathic care since 1980. According to Global TGI Barometer, about 6-9 million people in the UK prefer to use homoeopathy. Furthermore, 42 per cent of British physicians refers patients to their homoeopathic counterparts [British Medical Journal].
There are many advantages that homoeopathy offers to patients. Foremost is that it offers holistic treatment, which means it treats a person as a whole and not only on the basis of external symptoms. The other benefit is that homoeopathy is safe and treats naturally. Apart from these benefits, what makes it different from other forms of medicine is that it is cost-effective, non-invasive and painless.
