Centre undertakes collaborative research in AYUSH with foreign countries

In order to ensure that Ayurveda and other traditional medicinal systems are recognized internationally, the Ministry of AYUSH is working with the United States Pharmacopeia (USP) to harmonize Ayurveda and its practice all over the world. The step is intended to increase not only the acceptance of such medicines in other countries but also to make it easier for AYUSH doctors and therapists to work there. The aim of this collaborative research in AYUSH is to gain international recognition for Ayurveda and other conventional medicinal systems, as well as AYUSH medicines. The Union AYUSH Ministry has suggested setting up chairs for Ayurveda, Unani, and homeopathy on a full-time fixed-term contract basis, initially for one year, to encourage academic and collaborative research activities on AYUSH systems in foreign countries. On the same, the ministry has invited applications from qualified Indian candidates.

The AYUSH ministry will create AYUSH academic chairs in foreign universities or institutes in consultation with Indian missions abroad, according to the program. A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) has been signed at the institute level between the AYUSH ministry’s institute or council and the concerned host international university or institute for the establishment of such chairs.  Academic and research activities related to AYUSH systems of medicine will be undertaken by the chair. It will also develop and finalize the curriculum for short- and medium-term courses in compliance with the university’s needs and Indian AYUSH education guidelines. This collaborative research in AYUSH will allow the chair to take tutorials, lectures, practical sessions as per the curricular requirements of the university and will take part in the activities such as departmental seminars, conferences, faculty meetings, etc. as mutually agreed between the university and the chair.

As of now, the Ministry of AYUSH has signed 25 Country to Country MoUs for Cooperation in the field of Traditional Medicine and Homoeopathy namely Nepal, Bangladesh, Hungary, Trinidad & Tobago, Malaysia, WHO Geneva, Mauritius, Mongolia, Turkmenistan, Myanmar, Germany (Joint declaration), Iran, Sao Tome & Príncipe, Equatorial Guinea, Cuba, Colombia, Japan (MoC), Bolivia, Gambia, Republic of Guinea, China, St. Vincent & The Grenadines, Suriname, Brazil, and Zimbabwe. 23 MoUs for undertaking collaborative research in AYUSH systems of medicine have been signed with various foreign universities in countries namely Germany, United Kingdom, Canada, WHO Geneva, United States, Argentina, Israel, Brazil, Australia, Austria Tajikistan, and Ecuador
