Mission Madhumeh (mission Diabetes)

In every 5 people 2 are diagnosed by Diabetes in India. This is one of the any reasons why many people suffer from different diseases every now and then in the nation. Looking at this situation the Modi government has taken another initiative towards the development of nation. The initiative namely Mission Madhumeh will be arrived on the day of Dhanteras this year when there is also Rashtriya Ayurveda Diwas.

Under mission madhumeh, all the ayurvedic hospitals across the nation will form a medical team and conduct a consultancy for the diabetes patients. Patients will be able to know about their health condition through the consultants and also can opt for primary treatment without spending a penny.

Also the consultants will guide the patients on how to control the diabetes. Even when you don’t have diabetes how can you avoid having this disease will also be told by the doctors and consultants in the Mission Madhumeh.


  • The objective of having this day is to make people aware about the ayurved vidya in India. Ayurved had originated from India but unfortunately this science is no longer used by the patients. Instead they shift to allopathic treatment and some have shifted to homeopathy. The day will be celebrated to encourage the ayurved treatment as well in India.
  • In recent times Ayurved treatment has developed a lot with new medication and advance treatment. Modi government has keen to promote the same as new sort of treatment can be used to cure many health problems today. The main objective of the day celebration is to encourage Ayurved alongside.
  • Also the main aim of Mission Madhumeh is to spread awareness of diabetes. Conducting consultancy and primary checkups for diabetic patients will lead to more awareness and knowledge about the disease. Also people will know how to control the diabetes.
