The AYUSH Ministry has said that it will open an All India Institute of Medical Sciences-like hospital, exclusively offering Ayush treatments (Ayurveda, Yoga, Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and Homeopathy), in Delhi in the next three months.
The AYUSH Ministry is planning to set up similar hospitals in every state, Union Minister of State, Sripad Naik said after inaugurating a Homeopathy Centre of Excellence at the neighbouring Palghar district.
The World Health Organization has recognised AYUSH and is carrying out research on its application in cancer and public health, he said.
Naik also said that his ministry was looking for doctors to provide relevant treatments in all Primary Health Centres (PHCs) in the country, besides trying to set up an independent AYUSH ward in every district hospital.
