Traditional knowledge systems, though considered invaluable, present a complex subject matter. In the context of contemporary modern advancements, the disparity in recognition of these deep-rooted traditions and cultural expressions is a matter of serious concern. While deliberations are being held at various global forums, there has yet to be a consensus on binding legal interventions recognizing and respecting traditional knowledge and associated people’s rights. Nations continue to make efforts to bring in the required knowledge parity and equity. The Government of India’s efforts in traditional medicines, especially Ayush, can be seen as a positive example for others. Hon’ble Prime Minister of India appreciating the various aspects of Ayush health and envisions Ayush as an effective tool for global welfare. This unwavering focus of the Government towards promoting Ayush for global welfare can be found in the different “Mann ki Baat” episodes, an interactive platform of the Government with the citizens of India. The remarkable efforts of Ministry of Ayush (MoA) towards forging cooperation with national and international agencies and other stakeholders are the key drivers for boosting awareness, training, education, research and market expansion. The present article provides a brief account of the efforts in the country on this front.
