A Review on Mainstreaming of AYUSH and Revitalization of Local Health Traditions under NRHM

Janmejaya Samal.

Abstract
Background:
The concept of mainstreaming of AYUSH by collocation services with Allopathy has been in the official plan document since the IXth five year plan. National Rural Health Mission has finally implemented it on a countrywide scale in 2005. The NRHM strategy of ‘Mainstreaming of AYUSH and revitalization of local health traditions’ is mainly confined to collocation of AYUSH doctor in primary and secondary health facilities in many states while some other states have planned other activities that strengthen AYUSH services beyond mere contractual appointment of AYUSH doctors.

Objective:
To review in detail the concept of Mainstreaming of AYUSH and revitalization of local health traditions at the end of the first phase of NRHM.

Methodology:
Review based study. Secondary data were obtained from pertinent Government Dept/websites such as Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Department of AYUSH, Government of India.

Discussion:
‘Mainstreaming of AYUSH and revitalization of local health traditions’ shows a great degree of collocation but issues related to AYUSH doctors and paramedics, strengthening of AYUSH and revitalization of local health traditions, Training & orientation of AYUSH doctors and paramedics need to be addressed properly so as justify mainstreaming of AYUSH and revitalization of local health traditions.

Conclusion:
Mainstreaming of AYUSH and revitalization of local health traditions should not only be limited to collocation of AYUSH facilities under the roof of allopathic facilities rather it should transcend beyond to address pertinent issues such as proper training and orientation of AYUSH workforce, universal recruitment policy, provision of drugs and necessary equipments, infrastructural correction etc.

Key words: AYUSH (Ayurveda,Yoga & Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha, Homoeopathy) LHT (Local Health Traditions), NRHM( National Rural Health Mission)
