Pilot project for traditional health practitioners

In an initiative to bring traditional health practitioners under the fold of the formal public health system, a national pilot is all set to be launched in Arunachal Pradesh.

With the East Siang having been identified for the start, the project aims to integrate the traditional health practitioners, also known as folk healers or Grama Vaidya, with the public health system, official sources said on Saturday.

The project to be implemented by IGNOU Institute of Vocational Education and Training (IVET), Shillong and supported by the department of Ayush, the Union Government will help the traditional health practitioners get their knowledge assessment for certif ication with certain standard benchmarks.

I hope that some countries will also take a look at this healthcare model to be integrated in their own system. I believe this is a big step towards achieving a culture-based healthcare system for India.
