In order to promote the Indian Systems of Medicine domestically and internationally, it is important to understand and assess regulatory frameworks, value chains, global economy of Traditional Medicine, and international legislations pertaining to the same. While there is a substantial body of clinical, pharmacological, pharmacognosy, and other related research on Indian Traditional Medicines (ITMs), there is greater need for research on economic, sociological, politico-economic, trade, management, and technology related aspects of ITM in health systems. Therefore, FITM has launched the Research Fellowship Programme to encourage and promote research in aforementioned areas.
