With the aim of bringing the “health revolution” under the auspices of the traditional medicine system AYUSH (Ayurveda, Yoga and Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and Homeopathy) hospitals were established in the district, but due to the shortage of doctors and medicines, approximately 17 dispensaries have been closed in the district of Bokaro.
The dispensaries, which have been closed for the past few months, include Rajkiya Ayurvedic Aushadhalaya in Paterwar, Bermo, Gomia, Pindrajora, Chas, Koriya, Barmasia, Tupra, Saddam and Chatrochatti; Rajkiya Aushadhalaya homeopathy in Nawadih, Bhendra, Mahuatand, Bokaro Steel City and Chandankiyari while Unani Rajkiya Aushadhalaya in Kasmar and Jaridih, sources reported.
By admitting the shortage of doctors, medical personnel and medicines, the civil surgeon, Dr Ambika Prasad Mandal, said they hope the government will find a solution as soon as possible. “Shortly after the appointment of the doctors and after the availability of medicines, the health facilities would be standardized in the centres,” he added.
The Ministry of Health has approved a total of 20 publications of AYUSH doctors for the district, but only one doctor is published in the District’s Joint Dispensary, said CS, adding: “Absence of doctors and in the absence of medication, at least 17 dispensaries are closed for many days. “
In order to promote the Medicines Systems of India and the government of health, AYUSH hospitals are being established in all districts of the country. These systems are based on defined medical philosophies and represent a healthy way of life with established concepts on disease prevention and health promotion, said staff from the district health department. The basic approach of all these systems on health, disease and treatment is holistic. Because of this, there is a resurgence of interest in AYUSH systems, he said.

It was previously known as the Department of the Indian System of Medicine and Homeopathy (ISM & H), which was created in March 1995 and was renamed the Department of Ayurveda, Yoga and Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and Homeopathy (AYUSH) in November 2003 , with special attention The development of Education and Research in Ayurveda, Yoga and Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and Homeopathy, said.
