Kerala, the southernmost state of India, has emerged as one of the best and overall performers according to the Niti Aayog Health Index for the fourth consecutive year. The Aayog has prepared the report based on the base year of 2018-19, and 2019-20 to plan for the next year.

Kerala got the top position in overall health performance as per the fourth Health Index introduced by the Niti Aayog of India. It’s the fourth consecutive round in which Kerala has emerged as the best state in providing the best health services to its citizens in overall health performance. The second and third position goes to Tamil Nadu and Telangana respectively.

The poll-bound state “Uttar Pradesh” has been detected as the worst performer in providing better health services, but the state topped the incremental performance list. According to the report, Uttar Pradesh has registered the highest incremental change from the base year of 2018-19 to 2019-20, the reference year. Bihar and MP are placed at second and third positions respectively as worst performers.

Despite achieving the top positions, Kerala and TN got 12th and 18th positions respectively in terms of incremental performance. However, Telangana performed very well as it was successful in taking the third position in both the lists/categories.

If we talk about smaller states, then we find that the Mizoram emerged as one of the best performers in overall performance as well as incremental too.

In UT’s, Delhi and Jammu Kashmir are at the bottom in overall performance but they are in the top list of incremental performance.

This 4th round of the health index is considered for the period between 2019 and 2020. The report is prepared by considering 24 key indicators related to health performance, smooth governance and information inputs.
