World Ayurveda Foundation (WAF)

World Ayurveda Foundation is a platform for all stakeholders in the ayurvedic fraternity to collaborate, share and propagate Ayurveda around the globe. Researchers, scholars, practitioners, cultivators, consumers, industry and governments are a part of WAF, initiating various programmes for consistent advocacy of Ayurveda.

The word Ayurveda Congress which has seen 6 editions since 2002 is a continuum managed and organised by WAF. This is global platform which provides ever evolving forms of scientific exchange between modern science and traditional medicinal systems like Ayurveda. World Ayurveda Congress has so far touched over a million people through its AROGYA expos and in every edition the number of delegates exceeded far beyond expectations.

World Ayurveda Congress is actively patronised by 46 countries across the globe.

It has been a long standing aspiration of the AYUSH fraternity to have an independent ministry for AYUSH which was announced by the Honorable Prime Minister Narendra Modi, immediately after attending the valedictory foundation of 6th WAC.
