Tribals constitute around one per cent of Tamil Nadu's population. While they are spread throughout the State, there is a higher concentration in 12 districts which are referred to as the tribal districts.
Tribal communities have not enjoyed adequate healthcare services. Totally, 173 Primary Health Centres (PHCs) and 611 health centres serve this population. Inaccessibility and cultural factors are the main challenges.
As one of the main aims of the Tamil Nadu Health Systems Project is to increase access to quality healthcare for poor and disadvantaged people, the Project has undertaken the task of improving healthcare services to tribal communities in Tamil Nadu.
