The MoU will also lead to joint projects and publications.
This partnership is expected to result in some cutting-edge research in Ayurveda as well as in the promotion and spread of knowledge associated with Ayurvedic Sciences across the globe. It will integrate traditional knowledge with modern sciences and add new dimensions to research in Ayurveda.
The Ministry of AYUSH plays a big role in introducing and promoting the Indian System of Medicine globally in the current pandemic scenario.
The Ministry has accepted the need for forging partnerships with like-minded and stakeholding institutions for increasing the depth and scope of AYUSH Health Solutions that are available to the public.
It has also encouraged Public-Private Partnership (PPP) as a strategy to augment the inflow of resources into the AYUSH sector. The current MoU is an outcome of this approach.
The two institutions will work together for evolving knowledge and procedures which will be of use to the National Healthcare System and ultimately to Health solutions that will be of relevance to the general populace.
