To commemorate the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) has developed a collector’s edition of Indian Journal of Medical Research (IJMR) focusing on Gandhian principles of health. This special edition titled, ‘Gandhi & Health @150’was launched in Dharamshala by His Holiness the Dalai Lamaon20 March 2019 to kick off a two-day symposium (25-26 March 2019) in New Delhi, organised by ICMR and the National Gandhi Museum.

This special edition of IJMR details the medical legacy of Gandhi, his health profile and his experiments on health, based on articles published and health records that are available. It also highlights ICMR’s contributions in areas that are relevant to Gandhian principles, such as importance of hygiene and sanitation (relevant to diseases like cholera, malaria, TB and leprosy), living a disciplined life and the role of physical fitness with meditation (relevant to lifestyle diseases, mental health and the youth) and balanced diet (relevant to nutrition)… (ICMR, March 25, 2019)
