Medical Facilities

The British administration gave special emphasis to medical care for the people.  In 1889 the district had one station hospital, four civil dispensaries and four military police outpost  hospitals

The Christian missionaries also started medical care along with spread of education in the district. They started two excellent hospitals - one at Serkawn near Lunglei and other at Durtlang near Aizawl.  They also started nurses training centres attached to these hospitals.

The common diseases in Mizoram are malaria, respiratory disorders, round worm and stomach trouble. 

The strategy in the Eight plan for medical coverage includes improvement of health care facilities in rural areas by establishing new community health centres, primary health centres and sub-centres, establishment of  a referral state hospital, establishment of nurse's school and pharmacists, training centres, improvement of infrastructure to combat, control and eradicate epidemics and communicable diseases. Drug abuse is increasing in Mizoram alarmingly. Hence de - addiction centres are being opened. Mental disorder cases like lunacy and suicide incidents in the state have always been high. Psychiatric attention needs adequate priority in the medical field of the state.

Social Welfare

The Mizos have a deep sense of belonging to their society and a very close fellow-feeling. This was traditionally nurtured and sustained by the institution Zawlbuk and the spirit of service in Tlawngmaihna.  After the spread of Christianity in Mizoram both these tradition gradually withered away. But the Mizos kept up their cohesiveness in the new institution which they developed. The young Mizo Association (YMA) came up in 1939 and is now an organisation of the youth mainly engaged in social welfare activities having more than 300 centres in Aizawl and Lunglei districts.  The Lakhers have their association called Mara Thietlypy.
