The United Nations World Health Organization (WHO) has launched an international research institute that will focus on studying traditional medicine in India and aiming to benefit the sector by combining it with modern science.

The Center is expected to provide a streamlined data collection based on the research conducted on the quality of the drugs in a way that will benefit the public without any irregularities.

The National Board of Health says the benefits of this component will open a new chapter in health care, while acknowledging that traditional medicine plays a key role in public health.

Health Commissioner Tedros Adhanom Gebreyesus and the Prime Minister of India attended the inauguration of the Center in Gujarat, where it is estimated that at least 80 percent of the world’s population uses traditional medicine.
