AYUSH-Isha includes several innovative approaches to sustainable community health, including:
- Yoga programs are taken into public health. Uniquely, it is an effective system which improves the body mind co-ordination, effectively prevents chronic disease, and builds the body’s self-defense mechanisms thereby precluding the need for curative medicines. Specially designed yoga programs for pregnant mothers, are also conducted which help in promoting maternal health services and result in reduced maternal morbidity and mortality.
- Rejuvenation of AYUSH concepts and practices at the community level and reviving credibility for such systems of medicine.
- AYUSH Sevaks, a cadre of community level health functionaries who bridge the gap between healthcare providers and the community.
