AIIA signs pact with Amity Univ for Ayurveda research

Continuing with the policy of the Ministry of AYUSH of forging partnerships for promoting and developing the AYUSH Systems of Healthcare, the All India Institute of Ayurveda (AIIA) has signed a pact with the Amity University for promoting research in Ayurvedic Sciences.

The Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) by the AIIA, New Delhi, with the Amity Institute of Indian System of Medicine envisages collaboration in ensuring quality and standardization of Ayurvedic drugs as well as in Ph.D. programmes in natural product chemistry and pharmacy. Studies in Pharmaceutics, Pharmacodynamics and Pharmacokinetics have also been identified as potential areas of collaboration. The MoU will lead to joint projects and publications.

The 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 plays a big role in introducing and promoting the Indian System of Medicine globally in the current pandemic scenario. Ayurveda has made a mark by providing prophylactic solutions, viability of many of which has been established through scientific studies. The ministry has accepted the need to forge partnerships with like-minded and stake-holding institutions for increasing the depth and scope of AYUSH health solutions that are available to the public. The ministry is also encouraging Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs) 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 at a population scale.
