The National Sample Survey Office (NSSO) is set to begin a study to assess the public perception and use of traditional systems of medicines in India, said Rajesh Kotecha, secretary, ministry of Ayush, to News18.com.

‘Ayush’ is an acronym for traditional and complementary systems of medicine followed in India: namely Ayurveda, Yoga and Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and Sowa-Rigpa, and Homoeopathy.

In a first, the government will collate data on the use of Ayush-based therapies in India and the results are likely to be released by the end of the year.
