The recent Second International Ayurveda Congress, held last month in London, received widespread press coverage, including in India.
At the Congress, 300 delegates from 55 countries, including research scientists, doctors, and pharmacologists with expertise in Western and Ayurvedic medicine, discussed scientific evidence on preventing disease, promoting longevity and alleviating specific conditions with Ayurveda.
The theme of the Congress was: ''Ayurveda — The Pursuit of Health, Happiness and Long Life through Prevention-oriented Health Care''.
In an article headlined, ''Researchers to work with India to promote Ayurveda globally,'' Press Trust of India reported in the Financial Express:
''Researchers from across the world have vowed to work with India to promote Ayurveda globally, saying the ancient Indian system of natural and holistic medicine can help address major health problems.''
The article continued: ''. . . leaders of the three largest Ayurvedic organisations* in the world passed a resolution, recommending nine action points to promote Ayurveda on a global scale. The resolution calls for working with the Indian government's Ministry of AYUSH and Indian embassies worldwide to develop specific Ayurvedic programmes for each country besides establishing an international Federation of Ayurveda and Yoga and creating an international accreditation board for Ayurveda to maintain standards and the all-encompassing nature of Ayurveda and its many subsidiary disciplines in the areas of education, research and practice.''
