Study was carried out in the Kalppara tribal colony under the panchayat of Chelakkara, Thrissur District in order to analyse the health status and to study effect of environment on health. The total population of the tribal colony is 108, 22 families. Survey was conducted in the colony focussing on their health issues. Our study revealed that rather than few common diseases like fever and cold no other major diseases were found in the population which can be attributed to the geographical factors. Primary health centre facility is utilised well by the people and health status is satisfactory in this colony.
