Health is intimately linked to these essentials of living like safe housing , sanitation and food security.
Health problems prevalent in the tribal areas are mostly infectious diseases like malaria, tuberculosis , diarrhea apart from mal-nutrition and anaemia.
Although Government is providing health care, some of the areas still lack quality health care. Lack of health related knowledge among the tribes is often exploited by unqualified medical practitioners who are available at door step.
In order to give access to good health care, Shoshana started health care centres in some rural areas and also urban slums.
