Presence of various categories of diseases like lifestyle-based diseases, Metabolic disorders, deficiency diseases, infectious diseases, autoimmune diseases, Psychosomatic diseases, Genetic disorders and even drug-induced diseases in the society and appearance of new diseases and categories day by day leading to the understanding of significance, harmonization and logical integration of various medical systems for the benefit of humankind. India – the country which is the mother of well known indigenous medical systems such as Ayurveda, Sidha and Yoga, and cradle of other alternative medical systems like Homeopathy and Unani for generations – has a pivotal role and huge potential in international healthcare sector in the future, especially since India had brought all these medical systems in the mainstream of health care under the Umbrella of Ministry of AYUSH.
To improve the potential of AYUSH systems and to explore their capabilities to the world,- redefining their status, roles and responsibilities as per the demands of this new era are essential. Hence, proper utilization of Technological innovations in AYUSH sector, necessary interdisciplinary interactions within AYUSH Systems as well as with other contemporary sciences and logical integrations of AYUSH systems in treatments are the need of the hour. Apart from that, ensuring and equipping the resources and active involvement of regulatory bodies are also indispensable for this purpose. This process requires a multidisciplinary involvement with the active participation of various scientific and Managerial streams, Govt. authorities, Officials, Legal & Statutory experts, Medicine Manufacturers, Treatment service providers, Quality experts, eminent practitioners, Researchers, exporters, Medicinal Plant cultivators, Media persons and Public apart from AYUSH Academicians and students, to understand the expectations of society towards AYUSH systems and to equip all sections of individual AYUSH systems– Academy, research, Medicine Manufacturing, Treatment services etc- to cater their needs. In addition, this can be helpful in more global acceptance, better foreign exchange and creation of new employment opportunities for our country if the chance is properly utilized.
