In India, quality of life of tribes is felt apprehensive. The study is based on both primary and secondary sources of data. This study tries to focus on hurdles in implementing government projects for tribes, and differences between government reports and reality.

Good health is an invaluable asset for better economic productivity, both at the individual and at the national level, but above all it is valued by those who own it as a pre requisite for better quality of life and better standard of living. The biological differences and the life process of women necessitate special attention for ensuring better health for women. Beginning of Menstrual Cycle, Pregnancy, lactating period and menopause are the milestones in the life of ordinary women as there will be lot of physio- psychological changes. Each period requires special care in terms of dietary practices, physical exercises, rest and social interactions. Towards achieving this goal the United Nations, Government of India and the Government of Karnataka have made several efforts. The present paper has been prepared using the NFHS- IV data to understand the status of health of women in Karnataka. The presence of anemia both among pregnant (39.6% in urban and 48.7% in urban areas) and non pregnant women (43.0% in urban and 46.2% in urban areas), obesity, low body mass index and the domestic violence (20%) indicates the need for an integrated approach for the health of women. This calls for a shift from reproductive health approach to life cycle approach for promoting the health of women.
Keywords: reproductive approach, health problems of women, life cycle approach.
Menstrual Hygiene: Knowledge and Attitude among Adolescent Girls Residing in Observation Home.
Sanjeevkumar Y. Yaliballi
The word adolescence comes from a Latin word ‘adolescere’meaning to grow in maturity. In the life of every adolescent girl menarche is a significant event. It marks the transition of girlhood to a woman hood. This transitional period is marked with onset of Menarche which is the one of most important physiological changes occurring among girls during the adolescent year. It heralds the onset of physiological maturity in girls. Menstruation is generally considered as unclean in Indian communities. Girls and women are subjected to restrictions in their daily life simply because they are menstruating. Beside the health problems due to poor hygiene during menstruation, there seems to be substantial lack of knowledge about menstruation and its management among girls living in observation home.

“We cannot climb up a rope that is attached only to our own belt.” William Ernest Hocking
Support groups are the organizations of people who share a common disorder and problems who meet together to discuss their experiences, share ideas, and provide emotional support for one another. Usually a support group is led by a member who has had some training in facilitating group discussions. Unlike formal group therapy, self-help support groups are usually not led by a professional therapist but nevertheless can be a helpful coping tool to complement formal treatment. For some types of problems, such as bereavement after the death of a loved one, or coping with chronic medical conditions like cancer, chronic kidney disease, HIV, hospitals or community agencies often provide support groups led by a social worker or other counselor.
