About National AYUSH Mission

The Centrally Sponsored Scheme of the National AYUSH Mission (NAM) is a flagship initiative of the Ministry of AYUSH, approved and notified on 29.09.2014. Launched during the 12th Plan, NAM is designed for implementation through States/UTs. The primary objective of NAM is to promote AYUSH medical systems by providing cost-effective AYUSH services, strengthening educational systems, facilitating quality control enforcement for Ayurveda, Siddha, Unani & Homoeopathy (ASU & H) drugs, and ensuring sustainable availability of ASU & H raw materials. The scheme allows flexibility in program implementation, encouraging substantial participation from State Governments/UTs.

The Union Cabinet approved the continuation of the Centrally Sponsored Scheme of NAM on 15.12.2017, extending from 01.04.2017 to 31.03.2020. NAM aims to enhance access to AYUSH services by increasing the number of AYUSH Hospitals and Dispensaries, ensuring the availability of AYUSH drugs and trained manpower. Additionally, it focuses on improving the quality of AYUSH education by upgrading educational institutions, sustaining the availability of quality raw materials, and enhancing the availability of Ayurveda, Siddha, Unani & Homoeopathy (ASU & H) drugs through the establishment of pharmacies and drug laboratories.

In response to the evolving healthcare landscape, a shift from disease management to wellness promotion has occurred. A decision made on 30th Jan, 2019, stipulated the upgrading of at least 12,500 Health and Wellness Centres (HWCs) under Ayushman Bharat by the Ministry of AYUSH. The Union Cabinet, during its meeting on 20th March, 2020, approved the operationalization of these 12,500 AYUSH HWCs through States/UTs under the Centrally Sponsored Scheme mode and the broad umbrella of the National AYUSH Mission (NAM) in a phased manner by 2023-24.
