Abstract

This report provides the findings of the India Country Evaluation and is produced as part of the overall CAPTURED End Evaluation. After five years of support by the CAPTURED project the End Evaluation has assessed that results are commendable. I-AIM was able to design an approach in which health folk knowledge was validated by Ayurveda and Modern health Science through the PhD research program. This has been shared with communities and partners through an outreach program. Cornerstone results and outputs were the establishment of cheap technology for drinking water, researching effective village based malaria prevention practice, exploring wider holistic health concerns with health producing and curative medicines, addressing dietary deficiency producing concerns as in the case of iron and anaemia, setting priorities for conservation and verification of changing plant uses as species become more rare, probing a pressing need for authenticating plant drugs and quality, and pharmacology efficacy in biodynamic practices. These research focus areas in the PhD program have been expanded to include partnered research, materials and course development for a revival of ethnoveterinary practices and further extended to a dairy co-operative partnership program to resolve the problems of milk quality and costs related to veterinary treatment.
