AbstractIn India, over 104 million people belong to the tribal community. They are over 705 different communities with divergent socio-cultural and way of life having distinctive features in Indian society. There are various constitutional measures for the protection and development of the tribal communities as ages, even though their conditions are still in jeopardy. Poverty and deprived health conditions have been making their life more fragile. There are many studies traced out revealing health conditions among the tribal people in India.
