Nagrijuli development Block is one of the most remote and underdeveloped areas under Baksa district with poor health infrastructure. The villges under the block are highly prone to diseases like Cerebral malaria and several deaths occur due to social beliefs and women of the area are the worst suffers. Practices like alcoholoism amongst male folks of the community, adoloscent marriages leading to early pregnencies and poor anti natal care remain a common concern towards women and child health.
