Majuli Consist of two development blocks i.e. Ujoni Majuli and Majuli blocks. The paper is based on secondary data and analyses are done in GIS environment. It is identified that primary health care centers are not equally distributed in Majuli development block but instead of PHC there are lots of sub-centers and community health centers are available in the study area. Again availability of sub-centers is found satisfactory in both of these blocks. The number of community health centers is very low in the whole region of Majuli.
