"Our focus till now has been on communicable diseases. But now, non-communicable diseases are on the rise and scientific research tells us that all these are lifestyle diseases," the minister told a press conference here.

Nadda said the government had set up Ayush departments as tertiary care units in all hospitals to tackle lifestyle issues.

The camps would be organized by Bengaluru-based S. Vyasa Institute along with some other NGOs.

The United Nations General Assembly had in December 2014 declared June 21 to be observed as International Yoga Day.
