Utilise Ayush graduates in Public Health Care System of India

drsDiscrepancy in Induction of Ayurveda (BAMS) and Homoeopathy (BHMS) Graduates in Public Health Care System of India regarding.

We want to bring into your notice the serious issues regarding the grievances faced by the BHMS and BAMS doctors in India. We are institutionally qualified medical graduates whose course and curriculum maintained/managed by Central Council of Indian Medicine and Central Council of Homoeopathy.

According to Eleventh five-year plan document, India is facing the problem of inadequate health infrastructure and deficiency of human health resources. The Census (2001) estimated 2,168,223 health workers in India by 2005, which translate into a density of approximately 20 health workers per 10,000 populations. Current scenario of India shows extreme deficiency of public health workforce (approx. 20%).  Meanwhile, it is estimated that there will be a huge increase in need of public health professionals day by day. This would require human resources from diverse disciplines, fields and backgrounds. This lacuna can be linked with; either the lack of professional expertise in personnel’s employed in this sphere or with the shortage of manpower which mainly arises due to migration. Nevertheless, what lacks is the number of public health professionals which is hampering the goal of Health for all.

Thus, it is important to find out how effectively the already existing workforce of the rich heritage of Ayurveda and Homoeopathy can be utilized for tackling the public health challenges as this has been successfully achieved in the case of China where local medicine practitioners have been successfully integrated into the mainstream.

In India, we are very fortunate to have a wide array of knowledge systems related to health. While modern medical science and technology have gained dominance, practices generated outside its field of knowledge, both old and new, continue to co-exist. Both health care providers and the general people often resort to a combination of two or more systems. In recent years, the frontiers of modern medical research have verified the significance of traditional practices for strengthening health care and several developed countries are incorporating them into their health systems as well. Mainstreaming of AYUSH is much more than merely placing AYUSH service providers at the PHCs and CHCs. The organization, training and practices of each form of health knowledge tend to change and become specific to the regional context as a result of the live presence of other forms.

NRHM advocates placement of Ayurvedic and Homoeopathic doctors in the rural and remote CHCs and PHCs where the Allopathic doctors are not working due to unwillingness and shortage. In reality only few states like Chhattisgarh, Himachal Pradesh and J&K etc. are following this strategy but majority of the states are not yet.

No doubt, Ayurvedic and Homoeopathic graduates with a fairly large proportion in our country will also play a significant role in tackling the public health challenges.However, what is lacking is the willingness of concerned authorities to do so, making the situation more pathetic. Health sector trends also suggest that no single system of health care has the capacity to solve all of society’s health needs. India can be a world leader in the era of integrative medicine because it has strong foundations in Western biomedical sciences and an immensely rich and mature indigenous medical heritage of its own. Therefore, there is a great need to explore the potential of Ayurvedic and Homoeopathic system including human resource to tackle public health problems.

Entitlement for PNDT, MTP, Medical Jurisprudence and Toxicology.
For what reasons ISM and Homoeopathy doctors were kept out of ambit of said PNDT and MTP Acts are not known. ISM qualifications are not considered in the eligibility criteria of these acts which seems indifferent and unjust while as per UG and PG curriculum and syllabus radiology and imaging sciences, obs and gyne all are taught in theory and practical vastly. Consequently, ISMH doctors are debarred from performing and using ultrasonography technology and gyne practice by law.

Similarly, position of ISM&H doctors in connection with Medical Jurisprudence and Toxicology is the same. Thus, their competency has been challenged and their fundamental right to perform medical art is wrested. Therefore, they seek your intervention for being important in the larger interest.

Admissions and Placements of AYUSH graduates in Health Administration and Public Health (courses and jobs) in Modern Health Institutes and Universities.

The field of higher studies for ISM graduates should be extended in view of better carrier opportunities. At least allied health sector should be opened for admission to placements in higher studies. Health Administration and Public Health is such a subject which does not need any clinical expertise and legal want; doors should be open for admission in Health & Science Universities, PGIMS and AIIMS. Likewise for higher studies Ayush graduates should be allowed for admission into PG and PhD courses in public health, bio-sciences, agriculture, drug research, herbal research, botany, veterinary medicine, animal husbandry and bio-tech fields.

We request you to please order all concerned to look into the matter, so that our AYUSH Graduates do not feel neglected and our public health system is not devoid of the talent we are having.

40000 children enrolled in Homoeopathy for Healthy Child in Odisha

child1Homoeopathy for Healthy Child being implemented in 10 Blocks of 6 Districts in Odisha

Under the direction of Ministry of AYUSH, Central Council for Research in Homoeopathy(CCRH) has developed a program on Homoeopathy for Healthy Child.

The program has 2 components namely, ‘Homoeopathy for teething complaints in children’ and ‘Integration of Homoeopathy with Rashtriya Bal Swasthya Karyakram (RBSK)’. The component on ‘Homoeopathy for teething complaints in children’ focuses on children in the age group of 6 months to 3 years and aims at promotion of healthy teething by using bio-chemic medicines.

Teething associated problems such as diarrhea, fever, loss of appetite, irritability etc. are treated with homeopathic medicines. The component on ‘Integration of Homoeopathy with RBSK’ focuses on children in the age group of 0 to 18 years and aims at screening, early detection and early intervention of defects, delays, deficiencies and diseases identified under RBSK.

The homoeopathy doctors in the identified districts have also been sensitized about the program being conducted and how ANM & ASHA have been trained on the use of medicine kits. They have been requested to coordinate with the ANM & ASHAs in the respective PHCs so that children suffering from dentition related complaints or other complaints can be referred to the homoeopathy doctors as and when required.

All these programs were conducted in coordination with the district and block level authorities. Experts from homoeopathy, pediatrics and dentistry or community medicine were the resource persons in these programs.

More than 40,000 children have been enrolled whose records are being maintained by the ASHAs. Children with minor episodes of diarrhea have been given homoeopathic medicines in consultation with the homoeopathic physicians. No adverse effects of the medicines have been reported so far.

The nodal officers of the program have been trained on undertaking screening of children for 4 Ds (defects, developmental delays, deficiencies and diseases) as outlined under the RBSK. The development of block level micro plans for implementation of activities on Integration of homoeopathy with RBSK is in progress. ‘Child Friendly Clinics’ are being established at identified centres.

50 bed AYUSH Hospital in Government Wenlock Hospital Karnataka

wenlockMinister for Health and Family Welfare U.T. Khader said that the State government has given administrative approval for building a 50-bed AYUSH Hospital on the premises of the Government Wenlock Hospital in the city.

Addressing presspersons here, Mr. Khader said that the hospital would have blocks for Ayurveda, Unani, Homoeopathy and Yoga.

A temporary outpatient unit would be opened for Ayush branches inside the old building of the hospital on May 12, he said.

The hospital would be built at an estimated cost of Rs. nine crore with 60 per cent funding from the Union government under the National Urban Health Mission. “The department has already identified 50 cents of land for the construction of Ayush block in the campus,” he said.

“The proposed new block in Wenlock Hospital will be the first integrated Ayush hospital in the State. We also have plans to open Ayush Wellness Centre with Panchakarma facilities in the Ayush hospital. The wellness centre will be opened either directly by the government or through a public private partnership mode,” he said.

While the government has already sanctioned 58 posts for the proposed Ayush hospital, provisions will be made to hire the services of private doctors too, he said.

Delhi-High-Court-min1

“CBI failed to prove the allegations against Bakshi and Ramjee Singh” HC

Delhi-High-Court-min1Delhi court has acquitted president and vice-president of the Central Homoeopathic Council (CCH) and others in a case of granting recognition to homoeopathic colleges and permitting them to increase seats in graduate and post-graduate courses across the country against the norms for a consideration between 2000 and 2005.

Special Judge for CBI cases Ramesh Kumar acquitted president S.P.S. Bakshi and vice-president Ramjee Singh, saying that the evidence led by the CBI against the accused persons was not reliable.

“The evidence in the present case by Paramjeet Singh Ranu (a practicing homoeopathic doctor and the complainant in the case) is of dubious character due to political rivalry between him and Dr. Bakshi and Dr. Singh. He had contested the elections against both these persons and lost by a huge margin. Paramjeet Singh Ranu is an interested witness and is not inspiring the confidence of the court,” the Judge said acquitting the accused.

“Similarly, evidence by S.P. Anand is also not fully supporting the case of CBI. He has improved on certain material aspects while deposing before the court. He is not supported by any of the documentary evidence regarding his deposition before the court.

“Thus, his evidence is uncorroborated from any corner. It is clear from the record file that CBI has miserably failed to prove the allegations against the accused persons for the offences under Section 120-B of IPC read Sections 7 and 13 (2) r/w 13 (1) (d) of the Prevention of Corruption Act,” the Judge further said.

It was alleged that accused Dr. Bakshi asked S.P. Anand, Secretary of Hosiharpur Medical College, to purchase medicine of Rs. 5 lakh from his company Messrs Bakson Drugs and Pharmaceuticals Pvt. Ltd for granting recognition to the college, but he refused to purchase the medicine.

Mr. Bakshi did not grant recognition to his hospital and college, the CBI alleged. “In the case in hand, none of the accused persons was getting any remuneration except travel and daily allowances. Further, they were giving honorary services to the CCH. Thus, they were functioning for the cause of CCH in the field of homoeopathy,’’ the court further observed.

MBBS doctors not willing 700 ayush doctors appointed in Madhya Pradesh in PHCs

mansoor (1243)The Health Department is understood to have completed all formalities in case of appointments of about 700 AYUSH doctors at the rural health centres. Most probably, the appointments will be made next month.

According to information, when the MBBS and Post Graduate doctors avoid going to the rural health centres to serve and with retirement of the regular Government doctors, several posts of doctors were lying vacant, the State Government had decided to appoint the AYUSH doctors at rural health centres.

After announcement of the Chief Minister, the proposal was also approved in the Cabinet meeting. Since then, the jobless AYUSH doctors have been awaiting their appointments. The AYUSH doctors had expressed their wish to work at the rural health centres and then, the Government had decided to post them at rural health centres.

They will be appointed and directly posted at the rural health centres in May as, at this time, when there is scorching heat, the health centres will be in crying need of doctors. The training will be imparted later. In rural health centres of the State, specially at the primary health centres, sub health centres, Arogya Kendra and even at some Community Health Centres, there is no MBBS doctor. All these health centres depend upon the Auxiliary Nursing Midwife (ANM), health workers and at some places, the Accredited Social Health Activists (ASHAs).

Rural people suffer for medical treatment and are forced to approach quacks, private hospitals or nursing homes to save their lives. When contacted, Suraj Damor, Secretary, Health said the file related to appointment of AYUSH doctors needs approval of Health Minister. As soon as the Minister’s approval is received, the appointment orders will be issued, maybe, in a month. No training to AYUSH doctors after appointment this time, she said.

Antibiotics that increase heart attack risk-study

medicinesMany antibiotics may increase the risk of heart attack in people with underlying heart disease such as arrhythmias, structural changes to the heart, or heart damage from a previous heart attack.

A research published in the New England Journal of Medicine studied more than a million cases of antibiotic-treated patients in 2012, and discovered that patients taking azithromycin for five days were three times more likely to suffer a fatal cardiovascular event, compared with patients who took no antibiotics. Azithromycin also appeared to cause irregular heartbeats in some patients. Similarly, erythromycin and clarithromycin were found to be linked to an increased risk of sudden cardiac death.

Another study published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology analyzed 33 studies involving more than 20 million patients between 1966 and 2015. Researchers compared patients treated with macrolides to similar patients treated with other antibiotics or patients who did not receive antibiotic therapy. This time researchers examined each macrolide separately: azithromycin, clarithromycin and erythromycin. In this analysis, researchers found that each antibiotic was linked to an increased risk of sudden cardiac death or ventricular tachyarrhythmia.

On March 3, 2013, the FDA made a follow-up announcement with a warning to the public that azithromycin can cause abnormal changes in the electrical activity of the heart, which may lead to a potentially fatal irregular heart rhythm.

A Research Centre for AYUSH at Mauritius

mauritius-visaAt the closing ceremony of the International (Regional) Conference on AYUSH at the State House in Réduit, the Minister of Health and Quality of Life, Mr Anil Gayan, announced the setting up, in Mauritius, of a research centre on AYUSH being used in countries from the region and beyond.

According to the Minister, the concept of AYUSH (Ayurveda, Yoga, Unani, Siddha, and Homeopathy) and its interventions should be explored, in particular for the treatment of diabetes as well as an aid against drug addiction in Mauritius. The Minister added that in order to get the support from other Cabinet Ministers and the consent of the nation for the development of AYUSH and its integration into the national health care system, it is necessary to focus on the assurance of its safety, efficacy and predictability.

The two-day International (Regional) Conference on AYUSH kicked off on 13 April at the State House in Réduit with the participation of some 150 experts in each of the component fields of AYUSH, from both India and Mauritius. The event was organised by the High Commission of India, in collaboration with the Office of the President of the Republic of Mauritius, the Ministry of AYUSH, Government of India, and the Ministry of Health and Quality and Life, Government of Mauritius.

Plenary sessions and panel discussions during the two days focused on each of the AYUSH systems: Ayurveda and Naturopathy, Yoga, Unani, Siddha, and Homeopathy, which are traditional non-allopathic health and well-being systems. Participants also reflected on the development of a holistic and scientific approach to integrating the traditional systems of medicine into modern lifestyle and healthcare.

Tap Homoeopathy for prevention of various epidemic diseases: Shripad Yesso Naik

patients1On the World Homoeopathy Day, April 9, Shripad Yesso Naik, Minister of State for AYUSH, urged the medical practitioners to tap Homoeopathy for prevention of various epidemic diseases. He was speaking at the inaugural session of Homoeopathic International Convention being hosted by India.

The event is being organized to commemorate the 261st birth anniversary of the founder of Homoeopathy Dr. Christian Friedrich Samuel Hahnemann, a German physician, who was a great scholar, linguist and acclaimed scientist. The theme of the convention is ‘Integrating Homoeopathy in Healthcare’.

He informed the participants that India had been a major contributor in Homoeopathy research in the last few decades and the work of Indian Homoeopathy researchers was often cited by many international researchers.

The potential of homoeopathy remains largely unexplored – Minister Shripad Naik

The potential of homoeopathy remains largely unexplored even though it is practised in more than 80 countries, Ayush Minister Shripad Naik said today on the occasion of World Homeopathy Day.

Inaugurating an international convention on Homoeopathy at Vigyan Bhawan here, Naik said, “The potential of homoeopathy remains largely unexplored and, therefore, under-utilized in public health. This, despite the fact that homoeopathy is practised in more than 80 countries of the world.”

The two-day convention was organised to deliberate on different scenarios of homoeopathy in India and other countries, including developing strategies for formulating national policies, high-quality medical education, evidence based clinical practice and to promote appropriate integration of homoeopathy with the health care system.

“I am hopeful that this convention will lead to healthy discussions and the recommendations will pave way for focused development of harmonization in education, clinical care, research and drug development practices and processes in the world,” he said.

Noting that India has made significant progress in developing homoeopathy, Naik said the country is a major contributor to its research.

“The work of Indian homoeopathy researchers is often cited by many international researchers and these works range from basic research studies on in-vitro and in-vivo models of cell lines, quantum physics, nanoscience to clinical research in diseases like diabetes, mellitus, hypothyroidism, tuberculosis and urolithiasis,” he said.

The event is being organised to commemorate the 261st birth anniversary of the founder of Homoeopathy, Dr Christian Friedrich Samuel Hahnemann, a German physician, who was also a great scholar, linguist and acclaimed scientist.

Representatives from several countries, including Brazil, Russia, South Africa, Italy, Netherlands, UK, Austria, Armenia, Canada, Israel, Australia, Bangladesh, Japan, France, UAE, Cuba, Nepal, Turkey, Argentina, Slovenia, Pakistan, Ghana and Kenya, are participating in the convention.

Health Ministers of Bangladesh and Nepal and those of Haryana, Himachal Pradesh and Karnataka are also taking part.

A study reveals Indian allopathic Medical Education is Broken

steth2India’s allopathic medical education system is fraudulent and unprofessional, says a damning new report based on four months of investigation across the country.

A news agency said that the ramifications of its investigation are global, noting,”India is the world’s largest exporter of doctors, with about 47,000 currently practising in the United States and about 25,000 in the United Kingdom.” Fraudulent activity in Medical Entrance and accreditation In its assessment the agency used government documents, court filings, and interviews that documented widespread fraud and cheating in medical training.

The investigation found that a sixth of the country’s 398 medical schools have been accused of cheating or other transgressions such as rigging entrance exams or accepting bribes to admit students. Accreditation of schools and regulatory inspections were found to be corrupt, involving the recruitment of fake doctors to elude inspectors and paying or exploiting local villagers to pose as patients. In some cases professors, lectures, clinical training, and basic sanitation were missing from medical schools, the report noted.

CCH Second Schedule curtailing the prospects of new generation homoeopaths

weepingCCH Second Schedule curtailing the prospects of new generation homoeopaths

Dr Mansoor Ali

The sad but exasperated story of homoeopathy degree and PG holders in many states of our country – because of the unnecessary delay in the inclusion of courses in the second schedule of the Homoeopathy Central Council Act 1973.

Because of this ‘unjustifiable’ delay in the hi-tech era, many degree and PG holders lost their job, placement and higher education options for a long time.

Procedure
As per the procedure, concerned college should submit the details to the University intermediately after the the declaration of result , the University should send all the details including the question papers, name of the candidates, date of beginning and completion of their course etc. to the CCH. The CCH then examine all the details, will communicate to the concerned University for the remaining details if any, after that CCH will forward the same to Central Government, they will examine it and issue Gazette notification.

Time period : 2 months to 2 year depending on the completeness of submitted documents and response from Universities.

Here is a true story of a homoeopathy postgraduate who lost his job one after another.
———-
“This is my painful duty to inform you all that Fr Muller Homoeopathy Medical College has started P.G. courses in Practice of Medicine, Paediatrics, Psychiatry & Homoeopathic Pharmacy from the academic year 2007-08. At present all these courses are being conducted regularly at Fr Muller Homoeopathic Medical College, Mangalore. The first batch has completed the course in 2010.

It’s been 9 big years and 7 batches passed out the college till date but all these 4 courses has not been notified in the II schedule of HCC Act 1973.

Everyone might know that according to the CCH Rule (II schedule of HCC Act 1973) any medical qualification either BHMS or MD (Hom) granted by any University, Board or other medical institution in India which are not included in the second schedule will be considered as “NOT RECOGNISED”. Also without having this you may not get your registration done in the Central register of CCH. Also according to the MSE Regulation 08.03.2013 the essential educational qualification for Lecturer in any institute is PG degree, the one included in second schedule of HCC Act 1973.

Even after knowing all these technicalities neither the college nor the RGUHS University has taken any steps so as to get these 4 courses included in the second schedule of HCC Act 1973 and get recognition. Finally, we all students became the ultimate victims of their negligence.

I was the one among the majority who believes that FMHMC is probably the best institute in the field of Homoeopathy. Keeping all in the mind with lots of dreams after scoring 72% and Willmar Schwabe’s Merit award in BHMS, out of the way from North India I went to FMHMC for perusing MD course. There I saw that among all 7 streams PM, Paedia, Psychiatry, & Pharmacy (all clinical branches) were most demanding and college is charging more tuition Fee in this regard.

After my formal interview, I was told to take any of the branches. I chose Homoeopathic Pharmacy. In 2013 I successfully completed my MD (Hom) with First class scoring 71% marks.

Later I joined as Assistant Professor at CHMC Uttarakhand. Last year in July 2015 when I was selected for RA post in CCRH, I was told that while scrutiny my academic records, they have found that my MD degree in not recognised and it is not included in the second schedule of HCC Act 1973. I was told to produce any supportive documentary evidence in this regard so I could save my job.

I was shocked and surprised. I checked then official website of CCH, there I found that only 3 branches of PG (Mat medica, Organon & Repertory) in FMHMC are included in second schedule and recognised since 1999 onwards (Kindly refer CCH website – II schedule of HCC Act 1973 – Karnataka). Due to this, I lost my RA job. Later on after knowing all this & according to the MSE Regulation 08.03.2013 I was told that as my MD degree is not recognised yet, I am not illegible for Lecturer post too.

In the meantime, CCRH had called for 32 RO permanent posts. I applied and got my application rejected again.

And now NHMC, New Delhi has called for 24 Lecturer posts, they are also looking for the same qualification.

I don’t know how to say this to you all but I might as well now as I have nothing to lose. I have already lost many things. All that money and 3 precious years of my life are wasted. I am broken inside. These days I see no light, no hope, and no confidence. Whatever talent whatever ambition all these consistent rejections took it all away.

One after another I am losing jobs seems everything is vain and my career is ruined. That was me who took this decision for doing MD from FMHMC. More than me my parents are worried about my future. Hereafter we would never suggest anyone to go to FMHMC”.
——————————-
This is true in the case of Homeopathic Pharmacy and Practice of Medicine students of University of Calicut and University of Kerala. They completed their PG course in 2006, their course included in second schedule of HCC Act 1973 in 2016 only.

Who is the culprits in this case?
We are requesting a Department of Ayush inquiry in this matter.

Let us hope, FMHMC,Department of AYUSH, our apex body CCH and Universities will realise the magnitude of this problem and act promptly, for supporting the new generation homoeopaths.

This type of highly irresponsible attitude never expected from institutions, universities and authorities.

They also alleged that they have been deprived of basic infrastructure facilities and service benefits unlike their counterparts in other states and threatened to stage protest if government does not fulfil their demands by March 19.A

yurveda and homeopathy have been widely accepted these days as the Centre and most states are promoting the age-old systems of medicine. “But surprisingly state government is neglecting these systems,” said president of All Odisha Government Homeopathy Service Association Radhanath Praharaj.

The doctors have demanded class-1 officer status for all ayurvedic and homeopathic doctors working in the state, cadre restructuring, special incentives for doctors working in interior areas, formation of a separate AYUSH department and regularization of jobs of contractual doctors.Besides, they have urged the state government to improve infrastructure in ayurvedic and homeopathy dispensaries and hospitals.

They alleged that despite having equivalent qualification and same volume of course like in the case of allopathic doctors they have been getting very less salary and incentives from the state government.

Govt of India expert committee banned 500 allopathic medicines

medicineAfter cough syrups, 500 more drugs, including antibiotics and anti-diabetic drugs, banned in India

NEW DELHI: After last week’s ban on 344 medicines, as many as 500 more drugs – including antibiotics and anti-diabetes drugs – may be outlawed for being “irrational”, unsafe and ineffective, official sources have said.

Last week, the ministry banned 344 fixed-dose combination (FDC) drugs including commonly-used cough syrups like Phensedyl, Corex and Benadryl.

Now, a senior official says, the ministry is evaluating a list of over 6,000 products, of which at least 1,000 more FDCs are under “severe scrutiny”. As many as 500 of those drugs will likely be banned in six months.

“There is primary evidence in around 1,000 cases, which shows these are irrational FDCs. However, in some cases, the data is incomplete so we have asked for further studies. In around 500 cases, we are at the last leg and waiting for some documents,” an official told TOI.

The health ministry believes that “irrational” FDCs are causing anti-microbial resistance and in some cases their toxicity is so high they can even lead to organ-failure. There are also concerns that these FDCs being available over-the-counter, without doctors’ prescriptions, is leading to their misuse.

“Our objective is to ensure only safe products are available in the market. We have reviewed products for several times and there is evidence from research papers and studies to show these medicines are irrational combinations,” the official said.

On  the  basis  of  the  recommendations  of Expert  Committee  and  in  exercise  of powers  conferred  by  section  26A  of  the  Drugs  and  Cosmetics  Act,  1940  (23  of  1940),  the  Central  Government hereby  prohibits  the  manufacture  for  sale,  sale  and  distribution  for  human  use  of  drug  fixed  dose  combination of  above drugs with  immediate  effect.( i.e 10th Mar 2016).

AYUSH Ministry to integrate Ayurveda, Homoeopathy and Unani with NPCDCS

The Ministry of AYUSH through its three research organizations i.e. Central Council for Research in Ayurvedic Sciences (CCRAS), Central Council for Research in Homoeopathy(CCRH) and Central Council for Research in Unani Medicine(CCRUM) has launched a programme to integrate Ayurveda, Homoeopathy and Unani with National Programme for Prevention and Control of Cancer, Diabetes, Cardiovascular Diseases and Stroke (NPCDCS).

Yoga is a part as adjuvant therapy. The major objective of the programme is prevention and early diagnosis of these diseases; reduce complications; reduce drug dependency through these systems. It also aims towards capacity building for human resource development.

The districts in which the programme has been initiated are as below:

  • CCRAS- Bhilwara (Rajasthan), Surendranagar (Gujarat) and Gaya (Bihar).
  • CCRUM- Lahimpur Khiri (Uttar Pradesh)
  • CCRH-Krishna (Andhra Pradesh) and Darjeeling (West Bengal)

The Guidelines and Training Manual for the programme have also been designed and developed and printed for all officials, including Yoga Instructors, Yoga Volunteers and Multitasking staff (MTS).

The Information, Education & Communication (IEC) materials have been designed, developed and printed for the distribution at Community level by organizing awareness and screening camps.
