  The present study is an attempt to evaluate the relationship of haemoglobinopathies, particularly Hb E and Plasmodium falciparum malaria in northeastern region of India. The diverse autochthonous inhabitant of this part of India exhibits variable gene frequency for βE-globin gene. The geo-climatic condition of the region supports transmission of Plasmodium falciparum malaria in northeastern parts of India. The study revealed that HbE is predominant with a variable gene frequencies in ethnic groups affiliated to Tibeto-Burman linguistic families. Prevalence of Hb E is also associated with the linguistic affiliation of various Tibeto-Burman linguistic families inhabiting in malaria endemic northeast India. We have also observed a positive correlation (R2 = 0.703) of βE-globin gene frequency and mean incidence of Plasmodium falciparum infection (Pf %) in malaria endemic zones.

The children of Assam in the North-East Region of India have consistently evidenced low rates for routine childhood immunizations. This study has been conducted to evaluate the factors affecting the immunization coverage in the first year of life of the children. About 62.2% of the children were fully immunized. Lack of information among the parents was one of the major causes of drop out of vaccinations. The children from urban areas and mother's education level showed significant role in immunization coverage. Improvement in female literacy coupled with the reduction in the drop out rate would add to achieve a higher target of immunization among children in the study area.
