AYUSH Ministry nominates Dr Asit Panja to frame WHO Guidelines on Ayurveda treatment

Kolkata: To work towards the formulation of a standard procedure and frame guidelines of International protocol in Ayurveda treatment for the World Health Organisation (WHO), Dr Asit Kumar Panja, has been nominated as an expert by the Ministry of Ministry of Ayurveda, Yoga & Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and Homoeopathy (AYUSH).

Dr Panja, a renowned face in the field of Ayurveda hails from an obscure village in Bankura’s Joyrambati, a Bachelor of Ayurvedic Medicine and Surgery (BAMS) from Calcutta University in 1997 with three distinctions in Itihas, Agad, and Charak. He completed his MD in Ayurveda Samhita from Rajasthan Ayurveda University in 2003. He secured Phd from Dr Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan Rajasthan Ayurved University in 2008. Presently, he is appointed as a professor at the National Institute of Ayurveda (NIA), Jaipur.

He has been in the field of research for the last 15 years and associated with various research projects of AYUSH and WHO. He has gained recognition on national as well as international platforms for his work in the field of Ayurveda.

Last year, in April, he was awarded the prestigious ‘Young Scientist Award’ in the category of Literary Research by the Central Council for Research in Ayurvedic Sciences under the Ministry of Ayush.

He bags 14 books in Ayurveda as an author. He performed various researches in connection to the ancient literature and has given his contribution in national as well as international platforms in the field of Ayurveda. He has worked towards the conversion of ancient manuscripts to the modern form to implement the traditional methods of treatment.

Following the nomination by the ministry, Dr Panja will be going to the WHO headquarters at Geneva in July.  After the completion of the project, he will work in eradicating the deficiency that exists in the guidelines due to which people without obtaining a requisite degree are busily recommending Ayurveda treatment.

He will be submitting the documents to the WHO which will be eventually published as a standard methodology for the treatment not only in India but also across the globe. Along with this, he would be helping WHO in publishing a standard terminology in the field, reports the Millennium Post.

  1. I really do not know what\’s wrong with Ayurveda.i have undergone treatment at National institute of Ayurveda Jaipur under two renowned Dr. Who were the Directors of institute for a yr. At institute I found Ayurveda being practiced as Allopathy. Most of the Dr. Have started there own manufacturing units of ayurvedic medicines, they are very theoretical in their practice. Govt is spending humungous amt. On Ayush ministry. Is there any survey how many people are really cured. My friend who was suffering from throat cancer actually took treatment from an Ayurvedic Dr in California . PL do something to regulate this age old therapy of India. Earlier their were no universities but the Vaid hi used to be himself a icon of health, values an practice Ayurveda as his relegion. The truth of the day is that all those who cannot get into Allopathic medical colleges go Ayurveda. Their own children go for Medical colleges. At one time Ayurveda was superior to Allopathy now it worst then Allopathy.
