Abstract
In order to boost the public health expenditure and to strengthen the health infrastructure particularly in
rural areas, National Rural Health Mission (re-termed as National Health Mission from year 2013) has
been launched by Government of India in April, 2005. Under NHM special focus has been given on 18
states with poor health indicators including Assam. Under this mission various crucial initiatives have
been undertaken to develop the health condition of rural masses. Among these, a few important initiatives
have been introduction of ‘Community health workers’, ‘awareness campaigns’, ‘Village Health
Sanitation and Nutrition Committee’ etc. in every village. Thus, this study aspires to study in spite of
various initiatives taken by government, the health status of rural people is improved or not.
Methodology: The present study is conducted for two villages of Sivasagar district. The sample size is
342 which is determined by using the Yamane formula (1967): n=N/(1+Ne2). The Morbidity Prevalence
Rate is computed for each sample household. The Multiple Linear regression model is used to find out the
significant factors affecting morbidity.
Results: Type of house,provision of sanitary toilet facilities, participation in health awareness camps and
full assistance of ASHAs are emerged as significant factors affecting morbidity of the respondents of the
surveyed villages.

Key words: Morbidity prevalence rate, ASHA, NHM
