About Dhara

DHARA (Digital Helpline for Ayurveda Research Articles) is the first comprehensive online indexing service for research articles published in the field of Ayurveda.

The DHARA project is being implemented by AVP Research Foundation (Formerly AVT Institute for Advanced Research), the research wing of the Ayurvedic Trust, AVP Group of Institutions, Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu, India.

The Ayurvedic Trust was established in 1950. It is the philanthropic wing of AVP Group of Institutions. The Trust has been promoting Ayurvedic Research right from its inception and the Hospital associated with it has evolved into a referral center for Rheumatology in Ayurveda. In 1976, Trust had signed an agreement with World Health Organization (WHO) and Indian Council for Medical Research for Clinical Research in Rheumatoid Arthritis. In 2003, National Institutes of Health (NIH), USA awarded PICRC Research Grant to the Ayurvedic Trust through the University of Washington to study Ayurveda in Rheumatoid Arthritis. Both these initiatives were first of its kind activities in the field of Ayurveda.

The Ayurvedic Trust, has now received the Center of Excellence grant from the Department of AYUSH, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Govt. of India as a Clinical Research Hospital specializing in Rheumatology.
