Abstract: British introduced a Health Care System in the Punjab after its annexation. In this system they gave too much emphasis on the usage of western medicine and clinical aid to some extent. Public health services are comprehensive, which is consisted of medical services, structure of health services and awareness campaign of government related to various diseases and their remedies. In this, study an attempt has been made to highlight the problems faced by the people of Colonial Punjab at the time of outbreak of epidemics like plague, smallpox, cholera, malaria etc. and how the British Colonial Government tried to control the epidemics. The study have been related to women health and hygiene, education of health and hygiene , how people responded towards the steps taken by the Colonial Government. Public Health Services and Sanitation System evolved by the British Colonial Government of Punjab did not take the issues related to Health and Hygiene in general and epidemics in particular with that much seriousness. This has been constantly highlighted in this study. At the same time it would be unjust to blame British Public Health and Sanitation System for this plight only. To some extent natives of Punjab had their share in this situation. In other words both the British Colonial Government and populace of Punjab hampered the improvement of Public Health and Sanitation in their own term. It is needed to be dealt with an impartial manner. newline
