The National AYUSH Festival, organised by the Central and state governments, will be held at Colvin Taluqdar College from November 12–15. Being organised in Uttar Pradesh for the first time, the health festival will have special programmes on ayurveda, yoga, naturopathy, unani, siddha and homeopathy.
An initiative of the Union health and family welfare ministry and FICCI, the festival is aimed at informing the general public about AYUSH facilities and their benefits. Apart from conducting a free–of–cost health check–up, authorities will disseminate information about various research initiatives undertaken by the ministry in the field of alternative medicine. Different alternative medicines will also be available on sale.
