Chandigarh: AIIMS hospitals across the country will have dedicated Ayush departments, Union Ayush Minister Sarbananda Sonowalsaid on Thursday. Sonowal was addressing the inaugural session of a two-day conference on Ayurvedaand the regional review meeting of Ayush in Haryana's Panchkula.


"All the AIIMS hospitals in the country, besides state hospitals, district level hospitals, Community Health Centres, Primary Health Centres and sub-centres, Health and Wellness Centres, will have a dedicated Ayush department," he said.


Sonowal said under the visionary leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, India has made significant progress in reinventing the age-old and proven benefits of the tradit ional system of medicine to enrich the quality of lives of the people.


Today, everyone is talking about the Ayush system of medicine, said Sonowal, who also holds the portfolios of Ports, Shipping and Waterways.


Ayush is getting unprecedented acceptance worldwide as a holistic treatment and wellness system due to the efforts of PM Modi in the last nine years.


On the occasion, Sonowal said an organised Ayurveda eco-system is being built by the Ministry of Ayush at the global level through education, research, products and services.


Youth and common people can create successful startups by commercially manufacturing Ayurvedic products related to agriculture, horticulture and veterinary medicine. With the formation and growth of such startups, India's economy will become stronger by becoming a self-reliant economy, he said.


 "In India's Amrit Kaal, Ayush has a big role to play in driving the aim of 'Atmanirbhar Bharat' and this role has to be carried forward by the youth. There is a world of opportunity in front of them as they take up Ayush to heal humanity," he said. 


Sonowal chaired the regional review meeting of Ayush under the 'National Ayush Mission' for Haryana, Chandigarh, Delhi, Himachal Pradesh, Jammu and Kashmir, Ladakh, Punjab and Uttarakhand.


NAM is the flagship programme of the Ministry of Ayush and is being implemented with the vision and objectives to provide Ayush healthcare services throughout the country by strengthening and improving Ayush healthcare facilities.
