Abstract : The health of the Indian villagers is on a decline from past years. Hence, uplifting health care standards is a prime concern and must be given the highest priority. This research primarily focuses on the health care sector of the village Morasiya, Bihar (India). We analyzed the existing treatment methods adopted by the villagers. Interviews with the villagers and doctor, keen inspection of the health care facilities and observational studies of the surroundings contributed significantly to our study. Lack of a nearby clinic, negligence towards personal hygiene, unavailability of professional doctors were the main causes behind the downfallen health of the villagers. This study focuses on understanding the prevalence of skin diseases among children. The paper presents the qualitative information and quantitative data gathered from the village and how it can be utilized to exploit technological innovations in order to design a feasible and sustainable solution to aid the villagers.
