India's G20 presidency in 2023 has been a significant opportunity to showcase the country's rich heritage of traditional medicine and its potential to contribute to global health and well-being.

India's approach to traditional medicine at the G20 is likely to have a significant impact on the global use of traditional medicine. The country's leadership in this area is helping to raise awareness of the potential benefits of traditional medicine and promote its safe and effective use.

As part of its G20 agenda, India has prioritized the following areas related to traditional medicine:

In August 2023, India hosted the first-ever WHO Global Summit on Traditional Medicine in Gandhinagar, Gujarat. The summit brought together policymakers, researchers, practitioners, and other stakeholders from around the world to discuss the role of traditional medicine in global health and sustainable development.

The summit resulted in a number of key outcomes, including the adoption of the Gandhinagar Declaration on Traditional Medicine. The declaration calls for the safe and effective use of traditional medicine, its integration into mainstream healthcare systems, and the promotion of global cooperation on traditional medicine.

India's approach to traditional medicine at the G20 has been widely praised by other member countries. Many countries are now looking to India for leadership in this area.
