Abstract

In the present context, there is a great scope of research in Ayurveda and other traditional systems of medicine on scientific parameters to evaluate the legitimate role of Ayurveda in primary health care and effective global health care delivery.

Key words: Ayurveda, Swastha Vrittam, Research in Traditional System of Medicine, Primary Health Care
