Introduction: Key Issues

Anthroposophic medicine can add value to key medical challenges of today, including antimicrobial resistance and palliative care. But it must first be more widely available.

Anthroposophic medicine and other integrative approaches could play an important complementary role in meeting key medical challenges.

But to deliver on its promises, this system of treatment must be more widely recognised, available and integrated into national health systems. At the moment, only a few countries have taken steps to do this, and a part of the IVAA’s mission is to advocate for the wider uptake of these valuable tools in health systems.

Below are links to key information, including the IVAA’s policy recommendations, for key issues in anthroposophic medicine, from clinical, regulatory and legal perspectives.
