Kolkata: To boost scientific research and education on the traditional methods of treatment, the Ministry of AYUSH signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) on Monday.
It aims for further cooperation in research on traditional systems of medicine like Ayurveda, Unani, Sidhha and Homeopathy (AYUSH) and their integration with modern science. There is growing interest among people about traditional medicines across the country and hence the government is adopting multi-pronged strategies and innovative approaches to take the old methods of treatment to the people in the grassroot level.
A combination of traditional healthcare and modern basic science has a huge possibility to do innovative and path-breaking researches, which can be used for the explanation of various basic concepts, a senior official of the AYUSH ministry said.
