All the Indian traditional medical and nonmedical systems will be given a scientific structure, Union health minister Ghulam Nabi Azad has said.
“The ministry of health and family welfare has recently set up a committee to work on Indian traditional medical treatments like Ayurveda, Yoga & Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha & Homeopathy (AYUSH) and give them a scientific order so that reading and research material can be made,” Azad said.
“Soon after the committee submits the report, the government will take measures to strengthen the AYUSH practices,” he said and informed that education and job opportunities would be developed in AYUSH practices across the county.
He inaugurated a four-day Arogya Exhibition on traditional medicine at the Exhibition Grounds here on Friday.
The expo is being organised by the state government to coincide with CoP-11.
