Modi inaugurates first All India Institute of Ayurveda

Morning Current Affairs 17 October 2017

Covering an area of more than 10 acres and built on a budget of INR 1.57 billion, the AIIA is the first medical institute under the AYUSH ministry to hold the coveted National Accreditation Board for Hospitals and Healthcare Providers (NABH) accreditation. Understanding this requirement, the government is focusing on the integration of Ayurveda, Yoga and other public healthcare systems of AYUSH systems.

"The AYUSH ministry is working swiftly in this direction, and in more than three years, more than 65 Ayush hospitals have been developed", Modi said. For the academic session 2016-17, the Post-graduate programme (MD/MS) in Ayurveda at AIIA have already started and the PhD courses have been started for the session 2017-18. "If they do, they are sure to lose their identity over a period of time", Mr Modi said at an event to inaugurate the first All India Institute of Ayurveda. It also boasts of pathology, biochemistry, microbiology and Radiology laboratories/Diagnosis facilities.

He announced that fully equipped Ayurveda hospitals would be set up in every district and the government has shown its commitment by talking about integrating Ayurveda and allopathic medicine in the National Health Policy.

Addressing an Ayurveda Conclave Yesso Naik said "Ayurveda is witnessing a resurgence in India and around the globe".

"Ayurveda is not just a method of treatment".

The Ayurveda Day was also attended by former Union Minister and senior BJP leader, Bandaru Dattatreya, BJP MLC, Ramachander Rao, Chairman, State Legislative Council, Swamy Goud and others. "So there is obviously vast scope for Indian manufacturers for entering the growing worldwide opportunities of business in Herbal Pharmaceutical field". Medicinal plant farming can also help farmers boost their income, which is in line with the government's plan to double farmers' income by 2022, when India celebrates 75 years of independence.

The Centre in its advisory said that all states are encouraged to initiate similar local initiatives and good practices that associate a sense of dignity and pride among the households with having and using toilets.
