Indian government plans to Certify Traditional Healers

The Indian government is contemplating a significant step to address the shortage of modern medicine practitioners by considering a plan to certify traditional healers. This proposed certification would apply to individuals with traditional knowledge in specific treatments, such as snake bites, jaundice, and bone-setting, even if they lack formal qualifications.

Officials emphasize that these practitioners possess valuable expertise passed down through generations but encounter challenges in social acceptance due to the absence of formal degrees. The envisioned certification is designed to acknowledge and validate the practices of these traditional community health practitioners

The government aims not only to legitimize their knowledge but also to improve their social standing and create additional income opportunities. This initiative is viewed as a strategic measure to alleviate the scarcity of modern medicine practitioners, especially in remote areas of India
