The main purpose of this study is to find out the health related problem of slum people at Hooghly beside Ganga River. 178 people were the subject and the age group was from 20-60 years. All the 178 people were belonging from both genders and they all were married. Female subjects were house wife but few were engaged with some temporary job like house servant. For the interest, benefit, and social concept, I took help from my female students (research associate). During this investigation, I found that the people of this area were suffering a lot not only from health related problem but also from socio-economic and environmental problem. The main health related problems were 1. The slum people of the Hooghly city beside Ganga River were suffering from many severe communicable and non-communicable diseases. 2. Females especially those were married were suffering from overweight and obesity like disease. 3. High blood pressure and arthritis were also common.
