Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the All India Institute of Ayurveda (AIIA) in Delhi's Sarita Vihar on Tuesday, on the occasion of National Ayurveda Day. "Those nations who leave their heritage behind are destined to lose their identity", he said.

'Ayush integrated into the public health care system will not be a decision just confined to files, but will be a practical reality, ' he said, and underlined that 'Ayush is not just a system of medicine but it brings in its ambit social, public and environmental health'. Understanding this requirement, the government is focusing on the integration of Ayurveda, Yoga and other public healthcare systems of AYUSH systems. He said the time had come for a "health revolution" under the aegis of the traditional medicine system.

The new institute, Modi said, would promote such inter-disciplinary research involving the exponents of Ayush, Indian Council of Medical Research and foreign collaborators.

He announced that fully equipped Ayurveda hospitals would be set up in every district and the government has shown its commitment by talking about integrating Ayurveda and allopathic medicine in the National Health Policy.

"The AYUSH Ministry is swiftly working in that direction, and in just three years, over 65 AYUSH hospitals have been set up", he added. The government has kept AYUSH in its four priority areas. Our young men protect the country in very hard circumstances.

Quality Ayurvedic education also requires a lot of attention.

"People educated in Ayurveda must have full faith in Ayurveda, Let's take the vow of living for Ayurveda", said PM Modi.

The Government is focused on providing affordable healthcare for the poor.

Noting that people across the world are becoming increasingly attracted to health and wellness, the prime minister suggested that time was ripe for an atmosphere of Ayurveda to develop. With the demand for medicinal plants increasing worldwide, the World Health Organization (WHO) has projected that the global herbal market will grow to Dollars 5 trillion by 2050 from the current level of USD 62 billion.
