ABSTRACT:
A well developed health infrastructure can accelerate the nation’s chariot of development. In rural India, development of health care infrastructure is quite unsatisfactory. In 2005, National Rural Health Mission was launched which emphasized on strengthening the rural health care infrastructure. Health index has been developed using health inputs like number of medical institutions, number of beds, number of doctors in medical institutions and number of family welfare centers and sub-centers per thousand populations. In this article, health status has been studied in Purba Bardhamn district of West Bengal. All-round health status of Purba Bardhamn district is not satisfactory. The result reveals block wise discrepancies of health conditions in terms of number of medical institutions, number of beds, number of doctors in medical institutions and number of family welfare centers and sub-centers. Therefore, such kind of study can not only help to identify exact problems regarding health condition but also helps to take decision about what kind of health care policies should be implied to strengthen the rural health care infrastructure of the region.
