The Ayush department will be launching a weekly half-an-hour live phone-in programme on Doordarshan titled "Auyshman Bharat" on traditional methods of medicine, from March 28.
The programme will be telecast every Saturday at 6 p.m. in nine regional centers of Doordarshan in their respective languages.
Auyshman Bharat aims to popularize traditional Indian medicine among the masses. The programme will feature a panel of experts from Ayurveda, Yoga, Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and Homeopathy. People will be able to interact with the experts and clarify their queries.
Shripad Yesso Naik, AYUSH Minister, will brief the masses about the programmes and benefits of AYUSH in the first episode of Auyshman Bharat.
Vijayalakshmi Chhabra, Director General, Doordarshan, said, "We at Doordarshan feel that programmes like this would go a long way in creating awareness about Indian forms of medicines."
