They added that while alternative medicine systems are gaining momentum in many parts of the globe, very few countries recognize them as legal health systems . On one hand there is a need for professional training, more research and documentation of these systems and on the other hands there is a need for multi pronged collaborations and mass awareness so that there is wider acceptance which will ultimately benefit common people across the globe. It is time India took the lead to propagate the benefits of AYUSH systems and this expo is a definitive step in that direction.
