Abstract: Women and men share many similar health problems, but women also have their own health issues and need to understand systematically. The relation between women’s health and the idea of exclusion from different perspectives by mapping out major concerning issues like basic infrastructure facilities (hospitals, schools, public toilets, etc.) for women would be examined. The present paper is based on the secondary data, i.e. National Family Health Survey (NFHS-4 (2015-16) which shows that abovepointed challenges create an enormous lacuna for women, for instance, the total fertility rates of women are still high and creates healthrelated challenges for women in rural as well as urban areas. The report shows that there are huge differences in rural and urban areas (in the sense of minimum facilities for women). Therefore, the paper makes an attempt to understand how educational attainments minimize the large socio-economic differences which are closely associated with the health of women. KEY WORD: Exclusion, women health, education, gender-based violence.
