AYUSH Ministry campaign to distribute prophylactic medicines
In the next one year, the AYUSH Ministry aims to distribute the immunity booster medicines along with the guidelines to fight COVID-19 to 75 lakh people across India. People aged 60 years and above will be the special focus group of the campaign.
The Ayush prophylactic medicines kit for COVID-19 by the AYUSH ministry contains Sanshamani Vati which is also known as Guduchi or Giloy Ghan Vati and Ashwagandha Ghan Vati.
The Central Council for Research in Ayurvedic Medicines (CCRAS) has prepared the kit and the guidelines.
Aim of distributing prophylactic medicines campaign
The campaign to distribute prophylactic medicines by the AYUSH ministry has been launched as part of the ongoing ‘Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav’ celebrations to mark 75 years of India’s Independence.
Sonowal during the launch of the campaign said the AYUSH ministry with this campaign aims to contribute towards the vision and mission of PM Narendra Modi to ensure ‘health for all’. Of the seven tasks listed by the PM to fight the COVID-19 pandemic, taking care of the elderly is the first one. Hence, people aged 60 years and above are the focus group of the distribution of prophylactic medicines.
The distribution of Ayush prophylactic medicines will aid citizens of India in boosting their immunity against the COVID-19 infection.
