Andman Haemorrhagic Fever, the etiology of which was unknown, is one of the major health problems of the islands.

A proposal to set up a RMRC in Belgaum in Karnataka was included in the 7th Plan and 20 acres of land were allotted to ICMR by the Karnataka Government in 1984 itself. The RMRC however could not become operational due to many constraints. This RMRC will address itself to studying not only well known local health problems like Kyasanur forest disease (KFD), Handigodu syndrome etc. specific to Karnataka, but also other common conditions like fluorosis, urolithiasis, pancreatic calcification, cardiomyopathies, etc.prevalent in Karnataka and the neighbouring states like Kerala. This RMRC will also focus on herbal remedies and traditional medicine. The health problems of the sizeable tribal population in the region will be studied.
