Codifying Traditional Medicine Terminology

Ayurveda practices traditional Indian medical principles such as Unani or Siddha. This makes it difficult for patients to access other doctors for continued care. The Ministry of AYUSH, with the help of WHO, is working to address this problem by cataloging diseases and remedies in these traditional systems.


Standard terminology ensures that doctors follow the same pattern in writing prescriptions. This will enable patients to be given full information if new doctors change.
It also benefits research work as scientists worldwide can access complete details on diseases, drugs and their effects.
