Valedictory Address by Hon. Prime Minister Narendra Modi

My colleague and Cabinet Minister Dr. Harsh Vardhan ji, all the respected members sharing the stage and gathering dedicated to Ayurveda!It was being announced that a brainstorm-churning has happened here for three days and elixir of life has been found. So I have also come to take this elixir so that few drops would come in my fate and I don’t know whether I would get it a full pitcher or not. This time the theme is something like “Health Challenges and Ayurveda”.

Focal Theme of 6th WAC

However, the unfinished agenda must address deficiencies in service outreach, government expenditures, high out-of-pocket costs, and limited health insurance coverage. There are also healthcare infrastructure gaps and disparities across the Indian states and between urban and rural populatons, measured by such indicators as the number of hospital beds and doctor-patient ratios.

Propagating Ayurveda for Global Health Care

Advancement in modern sciences and paradigm shift in assessing the therapeutic value of old and exisitng medical practices often lead to the questioning of traditional approaches. Hence,sustenance of traditional sciences requires strong advocacy. Forums and groups that bring out the continued relevance and nuances of traditional therapies such as Ayurveda create a sure-footed impact over time. Ayurveda – the ‘science of life’ is the source of most health care systems. However, like all things ancient and traditional, the practice of Ayurveda was beset with challenges, especially at the turn of the 20thcentury.
