Co-location of AYUSH, Allopathy at Primary Health Centres: Minister informs Parliament

New Delhi: The Minister of State (Independent Charge) for AYUSH, Shri Shripad Yesso Naik in a written reply to a question in Rajya Sabha has informed the Parliament that the government has adopted a strategy of Co-location of AYUSH facilities at Primary Health Centres (PHCs), Community Health Centres (CHCs) and District Hospitals (DHs), for enabling choice to the patients for different systems of medicine.

The National Policy on Indian Systems of Medicine & Homoeopathy – 2002, envisages integration of AYUSH systems of medicine with the Healthcare Delivery System. Mainstreaming of AYUSH is one of the strategies in National Health Mission (NHM) which seeks to provide accessible, affordable and quality health care in order to improve the existing health care delivery system.

The government of India has adopted a strategy of Co-location of AYUSH facilities at Primary Health Centres (PHCs), Community Health Centres (CHCs) and District Hospitals (DHs), thus enabling choice to the patients for different systems of medicine. The engagement of AYUSH Doctors/paramedics and their training is supported by the Department of Health & Family Welfare, while the support for AYUSH infrastructure, equipment/furniture and medicines are provided by Ministry of AYUSH under Centrally Sponsored Scheme of National AYUSH Mission (NAM).

Further, under NAM, there is a provision of AYUSH Wellness Centres including Yoga & Naturopathy which also envisage engagement of Yoga manpower.

    Awareness of ayush in general public is very minimum. aggressive propagation is needed to flourish. Phc ayush Dr\’s are there in position since ten to twelve years but no ayush system implementation seen, for various reasons. Ministry of ayush, kindly look into the matter before its too late.

  5. Since 2006 till today under NRHM to NHM no body bothered about Ayush drs , no one supplied medicines for unani and Homoeopathy drs , but accidentally 2-3yrs once they supplied Nine thousand rupees Ayurveda medicine even for Homoeopathy n unani drs… Which forced Ayush drs to practice allopathy in phc ,chc,and taluk hospitals , due to the pressure of administrators and officers… Till today practising allopathy by Ayush drs. Getting salary sixteen thousand per month..
