THANE: AYUSH Ministry would open an All India Institute of Medical Sciences-like hospital, exclusively offering Ayush treatments like Ayurveda, Yoga, Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and Homeopathy in Delhi in the next three months, Union Minister of State for AYUSH Shripad Naik said.
The AYUSH Ministry is planning to set up similar hospitals in every state, Naik said yesterday after inaugurating a Homeopathy Centre of Excellence at neighbouring Palghar district.
The World Health Organization has recognised the AYUSH treatment and is carrying out research on its application in cancer and public health, he said.
He said his ministry was making efforts to make available doctors who provide AYUSH treatment in all the Primary Health Centres (PHCs) of the country, besides trying to set up an independent AYUSH ward in every district hospital.
Uttar Pradesh Governor Ram Naik presided over the function which was organised by Dr M L Dhavle Memorial Trust.
