current status of rural healthcare infrastructure of the nation especially in the North-Eastern Region (NER)
of India i.e. the states Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland, Tripura and
Sikkim. It also aims to make a comparative analysis of healthcare infrastructure among NER states. The
