International Classification of Diseases (ICD): A Comprehensive Overview

  • WHO Development: ICD is a global disease classification system developed by the World Health Organization (WHO) for international use.
  • Data Foundation: It relies on data derived mainly from modern biomedicine practices, forming the basis for global disease data.
  • Critical Uses: ICD plays a crucial role in offering insights into the prevalence, causes, and consequences of diseases globally, aiding in health planning, administration, and research.
  • Clinical Basis: The coding of clinical terms with ICD is fundamental for health recording, statistics, and cause-of-death certificates across various healthcare levels.
  • Support Systems: The data generated by ICD supports payment systems, service planning, quality administration, safety measures, and large-scale health services research.
  • Ayush Integration: Currently, Ayush systems like Ayurveda, Siddha, and Unani are not part of the WHO ICD series, presenting a gap in classification.
  • CBHI Role: The Central Bureau of Health Intelligence (CBHI), under the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, serves as the WHO Collaboration Centre for ICD-related activities.
  • TM2 Module of ICD11: The Ministry of Ayush, in collaboration with WHO, has developed the Code for Ayurveda, Siddha, and Unani Medicine in the TM2 module of ICD11.
  • Data Standardization: The categorization of Ayush-related data and terminology facilitates standardized data collection and research.
  • Donor Agreement: The Ministry of Ayush has signed a Donor Agreement with WHO, marking a significant step in this collaborative effort.
