Health is the prime indicator for social well being of a society. Since, health is related to the individual efficiency of doing perfect work; a geographer should focus his development studies in light of health aspects. People in different part of the world are suffering from different degenerative and contaminated health issues. All the issues can be considered and controlled in a wiser way. But, a physical disability and its proper management lie far away from the human clutches. It is not viable that a person would suffer from a certain disability. Better to locate the particular disability in spatial aspects and find out the relevant causes for such kind of disabilities. The study has focused on the spatial concentration of certain kind of disability and its relevant causes for prevalence. The study area is selected for the North Bengal's district apart from Murshidabad. The result shows that certain kinds of disabilities are concentrated in the particular part of the study area. In this regard the study seeks to find out few chief relevant causes for such kind of evil's suffering to someone. Measures of concentration, measures of correlation, significance test and cartographic thematic mapping techniques through ArcGis 10.1 software are used for the better analysis of primary and secondary data. Analysis of the data revealed that the spatial pattern of disability was largely regionalized because each type of disability clustered around some definite regions. The broad future and prospects of the study is to find out the relevant causes for such kind of impairment and disability and to mitigate the health issues by the medical experts with great care. Different kind of disabilities have been identified such as seeing, hearing, movement related, mental retardation, speech etc. A segment of population in North Bengal still is reeling under such kind of disability evil. The study has also carried out to enhance the awareness of the people about what ought to do or not to do the things, which might avoid from happening these different kind of disability and the need of government emergency to monitor health status of the people suffering from the disability.
