The present study was conducted during February-March 2014 in Kalidarha village of district Mahasamund, Chhattisgarh In our work, we have applied methodologies like interview-schedule, semi-participant observation and case-study among all 45 Gond families. We found that 48.9% of Gonds believed the climatic changes as their cause of disease. 57.8% of them responded that a change in the body temperature is their identification of illness. More than half of the Gond people (57.8%) first prefer a physician i.e. an ANM/NMA/MPW for their diseases and 91.1% of them are aware of vaccination. There is strong and successful traditional medicinal system which is useful for many diseases among the Gonds; hence it should be protected and used for the human welfare. Keeping in mind the cultural relativism, we suggest that the modern medical and health system should be applied along with their traditional practices.
