The 6th edition of One Earth-One Health - Advantage Healthcare India 2023 was virtually inaugurated by Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi today in New Delhi today. The Prime Minister welcomed all national and international participants and hoped that the gathering will strengthen global partnerships on the agenda of ''One Earth-One Health''.
In his address, Prime Minister said, “When it comes to holistic healthcare, India has much important strength. We have talent. We have the technology. We have a track record. We have tradition. For thousands of years, India's outlook toward health has been holistic. We have a great tradition of preventive and promotive health. Systems such as Yoga and meditation have now become global movements. They are ancient India's gifts to the modern world. Similarly, our Ayurveda system is a complete discipline of wellness. It takes care of the physical and mental aspects of health.”
Prime Minister added that the world is looking for solutions to stress and lifestyle diseases. India's traditional healthcare systems hold a lot of answers. Our traditional diet which consists of millet can also help with food security and nutrition. The global response to healthcare challenges can’t be scattered and isolated as it is time for an integrated, inclusive, and institutional response. This is one of our focus areas during our G20 presidency.
The Ministry of Ayush is actively participating in this event to showcase the strength of the Ayush sector in Medical Value Travel (MVT).

अमेरिकी शोधकर्ताओं ने पाया है कि लॉन्ग कोविड-19 के लिए असामान्य रूप से कमजोर इम्यून सिस्टम जिम्मेदार हो सकता है। कोविड बीमारी से उबरने वाले व्यक्तियों में कई लक्षण बने रहते हैं, जैसे कि थकान, मानसिक आलस्य और सांस की तकलीफ। ये सभी लक्षण महीनों तक बने रह सकते हैं।
इसे आम तौर पर लॉन्ग कोविड के रूप में वर्गीकृत किया जाता है, हालांकि लक्षण व्यापक रूप से अलग-अलग होते हैं। हालांकि, इसके कारणों की सीमित समझ इलाज करने के तरीके खोजना खासतौर पर कठिन बना देती है।
कैलिफोर्निया विश्वविद्यालय-लॉस एंजिल्स के शोधकतार्ओं ने लेरोनलिमैब का एक छोटा परीक्षण किया। जिसमें पाया गया कि लॉन्ग कोविड वाले कुछ लोगों में कोविड 19 से उबरने के बाद वास्तव में सक्रिय प्रतिरक्षा प्रणाली हो सकती है। यूसीएलए के डेविड गेफेन स्कूल ऑफ मेडिसिन में प्रोफेसर डॉ ओटो यांग ने समीक्षा की।
आठ हफ्तों के दौरान उन्होंने लॉन्ग कोविड से जुड़े लक्षणों में होने वाले बदलाव को ट्रैक किया। जिसमें गंध, स्वाद, मांसपेशियों, जोड़ों में दर्द और मस्तिष्क का नुकसान शामिल था।
शोधकर्ताओं ने मूल रूप से सोचा था कि एंटीबॉडी के साथ सीसीआर 5 को ब्लॉक करने से कोविड -19 संक्रमण के बाद अतिसक्रिय प्रतिरक्षा प्रणाली की गतिविधि कम हो जाएगी।
यांग ने कहा, लेकिन हमने इसके ठीक विपरीत पाया।
यांग ने कहा, यह नई परिकल्पना की ओर जाता है कि कुछ व्यक्तियों में लॉन्ग कोविड प्रतिरक्षा प्रणाली के दबने से संबंधित है, लेकिन अतिसक्रिय नहीं है। यह एंटीबॉडी कोशिका की सतह पर सीसीआर 5 अभिव्यक्ति को स्थिर कर सकती है, जिससे अन्य प्रतिरक्षा रिसेप्टर्स या कार्यों का अपचयन होता है।

He encouraged the audience to have the self-confidence to carry own indigenous research forward.
Speaking on the advancements in India's healthcare facilities which was witnessed recently during the Covid pandemic, the Minister stated that, "We not only developed the Covid-19 vaccine but also manufactured and exported them in a very short time. There were gloomy projections made on India's Covid management strategy but we were not only able to manage the pandemic well but also shared our best practices globally."
Mandaviya encouraged the Academy and researchers to collaborate with the private sector in research and innovation.
He also welcomed any suggestion from the audience for improving the health sector in India. He also released the book, "Journey of NAMS" and felicitated the Presidents of Academics and Associations present in the gathering.
