2nd Ayurveda Day: Modi wants an Ayurveda hospital in every district

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday dedicated the All India Institute of Ayurveda (AIIA) in Sarita Vihar, built on the lines of the All India Institute of Medical Sciences, to the nation. Formed on November 9, 2014, AYUSH ensures the optimal development and propagation of AYUSH systems of health care.

Ground is being prepared to give a major push to Indian medicine at public health institutions in the State, Health Minister, Dr C Laxma Reddy on Tuesday said.

He said that in the last three years, this situation has changed to quite an extent; and the faith of the people is being restored in the best of our heritage. "I urge them not take a step back but talk more about the benefits of the Indian medicine among patients and community", Dr. Laxma Reddy said.

The prime minister said there should be a ayurveda-related hospital in each district of the country, and the government is working on it. Those nations who leave their heritage behind, are destined to lose their identity, he added.

The Prime Minister said that herbal and medicinal plants can be a significant source of income, globally, and India should leverage its capabilities in this regard.

"Ayurveda is not just a method of treatment".

"The AYUSH Ministry is swiftly working in that direction, and in just three years, over 65 AYUSH hospitals have been set up", he added. It encompasses social health, public health and environmental health. "Let's pledge to strengthen, revive Ayurveda", Modi said at the event. "This is a good practice that instils a sense of dignity and pride in the entire family for their toilet, and will also have a positive impact on usage.it is recommended that this practice could be considered for replication in other parts of India", the advisory said.

Noting that people across the world are becoming increasingly attracted to health and wellness, the prime minister suggested that time was ripe for an atmosphere of Ayurveda to develop. "He mentioned measures such as capping prices of stents and knee implants; and establishment of Jan Aushadhi Kendras for providing medicines at affordable prices".
