Year Ender-2020: A report on initiatives taken by AYUSH Ministry

In the backdrop of the global health crisis caused by COVID-19 pandemic, the AYUSH Ministry has taken several measures to improve immunity and recovery rate of people who were infected with COVID-19.

The Ministry issued an advisory about self-care guidelines and preventive health measures for immunity. It also took various initiatives to integrate the modern and traditional systems to facilitate a meaningful, cross-learning and collaboration between the two systems. The Ministry made efforts to deal with the Coronavirus with the help of traditional medicine systems like Ayurveda and Yoga along with modern medical practices. These medicines played a remarkable role in boosting the immunity of people in the absence of any effective vaccine during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Ministry launched a three-month campaign on AYUSH for Immunity. It also developed the Telemedicine Practice Guideline for AYUSH. Since April this year, under Ayushman Bharat scheme, AYUSH Health and Wellness centres, AHWCs, are being established with the help of State and UT Governments. Over 12 thousand centres are to be operationalized by 2024.

In an exclusive interview with AIR News, the Secretary of Ministry of AYUSH, Vaidya Rajesh Kotecha said that  the inclusion of the AYUSH Health & Wellness Centers component of Ayushman Bharat in National AYUSH Mission has set a benchmark and will help the country  achieve universal health coverage for affordable treatment.
