Abstract

INFECTIVE AND NUTRITIONALLY DEFICIENT DISEASE STATUS IN TRIBAL POPULATION OF SEETHAMPETA MANDAL OF SRIKAKULAM, ANDHRA PRADESH

Sujatha Peela* and Chandra Sekhar Boddu

ABSTRACT

The concept of tribe emerged in India with the coming of the British. Gradually, the concept of reservation emerged and through that emerged the idea of scheduled tribe in independent India. The health care problems of tribal‟s are more because of illiteracy, widely spread communities, poor sanitation in some areas and their customs and traditions. Available evidence suggests that poverty is the prime cause for ill health, persistent morbidity and early death. However, lack of access to right food: iron, protein and micro-nutrients such as iodine and vitamins, is the principal cause for the very high incidence of nutritional deficiency diseases: anemia, diarrhea, night blindness, goiter, etc. There is a greater need for undertaking a region-specific study on infective and nutritional deficient diseases among tribal community. In this study an attempt has been made the impact of infective and nutritionally deficient diseases in tribal community of Seetampeta mandal of Srikakulam district in Andhra Pradesh and it correlates among tribal men and women, to indicate their existing health status, to identify the gaps of knowledge and to suggest a possible plan of action besides pointing out the debatable issues.

Keywords: Savara, Tribe, Malaria, Dengue.
