Jamnagar (Gujarat):

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday expressed confidence in WHO Global Centre for Traditional Medicine (GCTM) to build a ‘holistic treatment protocol’ for certain illnesses where the people can get benefit of modern and traditional medicine.

After the inauguration of the GMCT, the Prime Minister said, “GCTM can establish a holistic treatment protocol for specific diseases, in which the patient gets benefits of both modern and traditional medicine.”

The Prime Minister asserted that India’s tradition will be useful against certain diseases. He said, “India’s worthy traditions are very useful to the world in fighting diseases like diabetes, obesity and depression. Yoga is prevailing through International Yoga Day and helping in decreasing mental pressure and maintaining balance all over the world.”

He further said, “It’s important as knowledge of traditional medicines from different nations will help the coming generations. This centre can hold an annual traditional medicine festival in which maximum experts from all over the world participate. GCTM should mobilize funding for research.”

PM Modi focused on importance of yoga and said “It’s very important for this new centre (WHO-Global Centre for Traditional Medicine) to play an important role in expanding the scope of yoga.” 

He also said, “I also want to keep 5 goals for this Global Centre, including the compilation of a database for traditional medicines using technology.”

The Prime Minister laid the foundation stone in the presence of World Health Organization (WHO) Director General Dr Tedros Ghebreyesus and Mauritius Prime Minister Pravind Kumar Jugnauth in Jamnagar today (April 19). 

The Global Center for Traditional Medicine (GCTM) will be the world’s first and only traditional medicine global outpost centre. It will become a global wellness hub on a global scale.
