Goa World Ayurveda Congress & Arogya Expo

The 9th World Ayurveda Congress (WAC) & Arogya Expo, is all set to be held in Goa from December 8th to 11th, seeking to give a transformational push to Ayurveda to bring it into global focus.

Another objective of the event, being held in Goa for the first time, is to create an accessible and affordable healthcare system that is in harmony with modern medical practices. ‘Ayurveda for One Health’ is the focal theme being organised by World Ayurveda Foundation, an initiative of Vijnana Bharati.

As a prelude to the WAC, Sarbananda Sonowal, Union Minister, AYUSH, Dr Pramod Sawant, Goa Chief Minister and Shripad Yesso Naik, Union Minister of State for Tourism will attend a curtain raiser event at Hotel Vivanta by Taj here on October 13.

As many as 24 satellite seminars were organized across the country during August-October as a run-up to the 9th WAC. These seminars covered a wide range of topics and were designed to preach the objectives of the Congress and enhance delegate registration. 

Seven plenary sessions, 16 themes for oral presentation, a string of associated events, and public outreach programs will dominate the proceedings of the conclave. The associated events include a seminar on Medicinal Plants by the National Medicinal Plants Board (NMPB); a conclave on Pashu Ayurveda; Ethnopharmacology and Traditional Healers’ Meet; Guru Shishya Meet by Rashtriya Ayurveda Vidyapeeth (RAV), an autonomous organisation under Ministry of AYUSH; Principals’ Conclave by National Commission for Indian System of Medicine(NCISM); Ayurveda & Jyothish Vijnana; and International Delegates Assembly.
