PM Modi to inaugurate first ever All India Institute of Ayurveda

The first phase of the hospital was built with a budget of Rs 157 crore. Understanding this requirement, the government is focusing on the integration of Ayurveda, Yoga and other public healthcare systems of AYUSH systems. 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. He said his government's main focus was on preventive healthcare and providing affordable and easily accessible health care to the poor, and Ayush can take a lead in this drive.

The neurological and degenerative disease care unit, rheumatology and musculoskeletal care unit, diabetes and metabolic/allergic disorders care unit, Yoga, Panchakarma clinic, Kriya Kalpa, diabetic retinopathy clinic and infertility clinic are the current clinical specialities of the hospital block. It started post-graduate programme (MD/MS) in Ayurveda from the academic session 2016-17 and the PhD courses have commenced for the session 2017-18.

On the occasion of National Ayurveda Day, Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the All India Institute of Ayurveda (AIIA) in Delhi's Sarita Vihar on Tuesday and enumerated the advantages of ayurveda. It also boasts of pathology, biochemistry, microbiology and Radiology laboratories/Diagnosis facilities.

Every toilet constructed across the country under the Swachh Bharat Mission could now be called "Izzat Ghar", or something equivalent in a local language that means house of dignity, following a directive from the Centre to the states after Prime Minister Narendra Modi last month applauded the naming of a newly-constructed toilet in his constituency, Varanasi, as "Izzat Ghar".

Addressing an Ayurveda Conclave Yesso Naik said "Ayurveda is witnessing a resurgence in India and around the globe". Aiming for better standardisation, the ministry on Tuesday released a standard guideline on the Ayurvedic treatments and the second guideline on Ayurvedic terminologies. "So there is obviously vast scope for Indian manufacturers for entering the growing worldwide opportunities of business in Herbal Pharmaceutical field". "I congratulate the state government for coining this name", he said.
