New Delhi: An AIIMS like facility for ayurveda and homeopathy will be set up in the national capital in the next three to four months, Union Minister Shripad Yesso Naik said.
“In Delhi, we will have our first AIIMS (like institute). It is expected to be inaugurated in three to four months,” he said during Question Hour in the Lok Sabha.
Naik, who holds the independent charge of Ministry of AYUSH, was responding to a query on whether there is any plan to start new medical colleges in ayurveda and homeopathy like the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS).
The government is thinking of having similar hospitals in every state and efforts would be made in this regard, provided there are enough funds, he added.
“To converge the research approach of AYUSH systems with the modern system of medicine, the Ministry of AYUSH and Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) have together decided to have molecular based studies on specific leads from AYUSH,” the Minister said.
