Europe seems to be keen to adopt Ayurveda as an alternative system of medicine and remove obstacles in its wider reach across the continent.
At a first ever international conference on Ayurveda in Europe a set of recommendations were adopted for promoting the ancient Indian system of medicine in the continent.
Over 30 experts from India and several European Member states participated in the conference held on Saturday in Budapest, Hungary. The conference was inaugurated by Minister of State for Health and Family Welfare Panabaka Lakshmi and Hungarian Health Secretary Rapi Katalin.
The main objective of the conference was to bring all the stakeholders of Ayurveda on a common platform in order to create greater awareness, identify obstacles in its wider reach ans discuss measures required for its further promotion in Europe. The University of Debrecen in Eastern Hungary also agreed in principle to incorporate Ayurveda in their teaching curriculum.
India is actively promoting greater international interest in accessing complementary and alternative medicine systems, according a statement issued by the Indian embassy in Hungary.
