Centre plans to open AYUSH hospitals in every district: Shripad Naik

Indore: The Centre is working on a plan to open AYUSH hospitals in every district of the country in the next 10 years, Union Minister Shripad Naik said.

“We want to expand AYUSH (and Homeopathy) health facility in every nook and corner of the country,” he said at the inaugural session of an RSS-linked organisation Arogya Bhartis two-day meeting graced by Sangh Parivar chief Mohan Bhagwat here.

“Under AYUSH Mission, the work of setting up a 50 bedded hospital in each district of the country in next 10 years has begun,” Naik, the Union Minister of State for Ayush, said.

He said that his ministry has cleared 66 proposals from different states and sanctioned funds for opening AYUSH hospitals.

Besides, the minister said, work of constructing 992 yoga wellness centres has begun.

Naik said under AYUSH Mission, Rs 1,117.34 crore has been given to states and union territories.

In his address, Bhagwat stressed that medical care was a necessity for humans and it should be easily accessible and cheap.

He said the western world medical care focusses on the treatment of disease while traditional Indian medical science wants that people should stay healthy always.

  1. Mr minister do you know there is a subject called community medicine , which was called as preventive medicine. You\’re ignorant about m b b s course so don\’t talk . M B B S is not about curing diseases , it has nearly 18 subjects , do you know them . Don\’t show your ignorence and harm the public by trying to propagate ayush which has no scientific basis of any kind . Modren medicine gives more emphasis on preventive medicine that is we know how to prevent almost all diseases including communicable diseases . Using your position ask your brigade of AYUSh fellows atleast control Mosquitos in your area. Then u can talk of ayush hospital .
