Ayush at Glance

Initially the Department of Health & Family Welfare was responsible for the management of all Institutions of Ayurveda in the state, besides allopathic. Ancient Science Ayurveda is widely acceptable in the State and the way of treatment is affordable to the masses in the State.

Keeping these facts in view the State Government has paid special attention by creating a separate department called Department of Ayurveda as per the Rules of Business on 7th November, 1984 bifurcating from the Health & Family Welfare Department. Since then Indian systems of Medicine and Homoeopathy have played historically a vital role in the Health care systems of the State of Himachal Pradesh. This department includes the Ayurveda, Yoga, Unani, Sidha and Homoeopathy systems of medicines. In the Govt. of India this department has now been name AYUSH. At the time of bifurcation there were few institutions catering to the people of the state, which with the special patronage of the Govt. and infrastructure made available the department expanded tremendously as mentioned below: -
