Health of the women and children in a country is indicative of the commitment of the Government of that country towards the overall development and welfare of its people. As a part of this process of refining the mother and child health care approach, the AYUSH systems have been actively involved in the provision of health care services. Out of theses AYUSH systems, Homoeopathic has a strong role to play in the health of the women and children.
The health of women and children is the prime issue with the Government of India, while the mainstream medicine has achieved success in redcuing the morality associated with women and children, the benefits of the AYUSH systems have not been strategically explored for making an impact on the morbidity statistics of health care. With this background the Department of AYUSH, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare took an initiative to launch a National level Campaign on Homoeopathy for Mother and child care.
As a part of this a State level Training Porgramme for Trainers (STOT) was organised to train the 50 members of Trainers from various categories from the state, including, Chief medical officers, Hospital Medical superintendents, NGOs, Homoeopathic Organisations Indian Institute Homoeopathic Physicians, Institute of Practicing Homoeopathy, Medical officers from Dept of Ayush and NHRM, Private Practitioners, Executives from REACH, HELF, EMRI, APHMA, to train the local practitioners at the district level programmes. The training module prepared by the Central Council for Research in Homoeopathy (CCRH) with financial assistance of the World Health Organisation (WHO) aims at the capacity building and skill enhancement of the Homeopathic practitioners whilst dealing with common mother and child health problems.
