Abstract

Kajian ini bertujuan meninjau perkembangan kesihatan buruh India di estet di negeri Kedah antara tahun 1910-1945. Hasil kajian menunjukkan bahawa pennasalahan kesihatan buruh India di estet berpunca daripada sistem pengeluaran kapitalis yang berorientasikan keuntungan maksima. Untuk mencapai matlamat itu buruh India yang murah dari India Selatan telah dimanipulasi dengan bayaran upah yang rendah. Keadaan ini telah memiskinkan golongan buruh tersebut. Dalam hal ini, pengenalan Sistem Kangany serta amalan minum todi di kalangan buruh India di estet telah memburukkan lagi keadaan kemiskinan di estet. The research aims to study the development of health among Indian labourers in the Kedah estates, between the years 1910 and 1945. The results of the study revealed that health problems among estate workers of Indian origin started with the Capitalist System of Production, which was oriented towards maximising profits. With this objective in mind, cheap Indian labour from South India was manipulated with the payment of low wages. This act of manipulation resulted in the emergence of a group of poor labourers. Subsequently, the introduction of the 'Kangany' System and the habit of drinking toddy among these labourers in the estates further aggravated the conditions of poverty in estates.
