Should be Ayurveda hospital in every district, says PM Modi

Should be Ayurveda hospital in every district, says PM Modi

Dedicating the Ayurveda institute to the people of the nation, Modi said over 65 AYUSH hospitals have been developed in the last three years.

'Ayush integrated into the public health care system will not be a decision just confined to files, but will be a practical reality, ' he said, and underlined that 'Ayush is not just a system of medicine but it brings in its ambit social, public and environmental health'.

"But it did not become a priority".

Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the All India Institute of Ayurveda (AIIA) in Delhi's Sarita Vihar on Tuesday, on the occasion of National Ayurveda Day.

The Department of Ayurveda, Yoga and Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and Homoeopathy, abbreviated as AYUSH, is the state-funded body in India aimed at developing education and research in Ayurveda (a branch of traditional Indian medicine), yoga, naturopathy, Unani, homoeopathy and other indigenous medicine systems. Those nations who leave their heritage behind, are destined to lose their identity, he added. "The pride in our heritage is reflected in the way people gather for Ayurveda Day or Yoga Day".

"Understanding this need, our government is stressing on integrating the public healthcare system with yoga, ayurveda and other AYUSH methods". Formed on November 9, 2014, AYUSH ensures the optimal development and propagation of AYUSH systems of health care.

Emphasizing the importance of Ayurveda, Prime Minister Narendra Modi Oct. 17 said the time has come for an Ayurveda-based "health revolution" and called for affordable and accessible healthcare.

The prime minister said there should be a ayurveda-related hospital in each district of the country, and the government is working on it. Lakshma Reddy said efforts were being made to set up AYUSH departments in nearly all the major teaching hospitals, which used to offer Allopathy treatment to the patients. Aiming for better standardisation, the ministry on Tuesday released a standard guideline on the Ayurvedic treatments and the second guideline on Ayurvedic terminologies. "Let's pledge to strengthen, revive Ayurved", Modi said. The farming of medicinal plants will generate new employment opportunities.
