Homeopathy research set to get a boost

Minister lays foundation stone for a Research Institute for Homoeopathy and Unani in Kharghar

Minister of AYUSH, Shripad Yesso Naik, on Monday laid the foundation stone for a Research Institute for Homoeopathy and Unani in Kharghar in Navi Mumbai with the aim of enhancing research activities in incurable diseases, including HIV/AIDS and cancer.

The research institute will be under the Central Council for Research in Homoeopathy (CCRH) and Central Council for Research in Unani Medicine (CCRUM), both apex bodies for research under the AYUSH Ministry.

“High quality research in homoeopathy and unani medicine is essential for the growth, development and scientific use of healthcare systems.

“The Ministry of AYUSH is committed to the strengthening of all existing research institutes. This upcoming institute is a significant step by the government for inculcating research aptitude in students,” Naik said.

The Minister promised full cooperation on the part of the Centre in the development of AYUSH systems in Maharashtra while emphasising that the State government should utilise provisions of centrally-sponsored schemes and establish homoeopathic and unani colleges.

The vice-president of the Central Council of Homoeopathy, Arun Bhasme, said there was a need to develop AYUSH infrastructure in the State.

These institutes will be completed within 18 months and once operational, there will also be provision for world-class homoeopathy and unani treatment. – PTI
