Modi has been a strong believer in Integrative Medicine wherein the citizens and masses at large should benefit from the best of both Modern & Traditional Systems of medicine. India is also the only country wherein a dedicated Ministry is in place for traditional systems of medicine – the AYUSH Ministry (Ayurveda, Yoga, Unani, Siddha & Homeopathy). The government is also aiming at making AYUSH a part of the curriculum of MBBS courses in order to make modern medicine doctors know, adapt and apply the benefits of traditional medicine in their practice.
