Himachal Pradesh to provide Ayurveda for public health

Shimla: Here’s good news for patients visiting Himachal Pradesh rural health centers. They may soon be able to consult both allopathic and ayurvedic doctors for treatment. Top government officials said Friday that a proposal has been sent to the central health ministry. If approved, it could offer a better option to patients who would benefit from both streams of medicine.

In the first phase, 250 public health centers and 70 community health centers, which already have allopathic doctors posted along with other paramedic staff, will also have an ayurvedic doctor to assist patients.
