Convergence of Ayush/traditional medicines with modern medicines by bringing into effect integration of the two or more systems is the way forward for developing holistic healthcare systems throughout the country, based on the concept of the One Nation, One Health System. Adopting schemes, programs, and strategies for bringing about changes in the education system and medical practice, along with ensuring their implementation at each stratum, will aid in unifying the healthcare systems. Given the existence of medical pluralism in India, it is the need of the hour to amalgamate our ancient traditional knowledge and contemporary medicine to build a system wherein both work in unison to promote good health and confer protection from various diseases and make provision for their management in the best possible manner. The current article discusses the requirements and probable impact of developing such system.
