Fourth edition of State Health Index released by NITI Aayog

Recently NITI Aayog has released the fourth edition of State Health Index.

This edition has been titled as “Healthy States Index , Progressive India”. This edition has been developed by NITI Aayog with technical assistance from World Bank and in close consultation with Ministry of Health and Family Welfare.

The phase does not reflect the effects of COVID-19 on health outcomes. This is because the performance under the index is related to the base year for the year 2018-19 and the reference year for the year 2019-20.

It aims at motivating the States/UTs to establish robust health systems and improve service delivery.

The Health Ministry has also decided to link this index with the incentives under the National Health Mission.

The State Health Index is a weighted consolidated index based on 24 indicators grouped under the areas of ‘Health Outcomes’, ‘Governance & Information’ and ‘Key Inputs/Processes’.

It ranks the states and union territories on the basis of their year-on-year incremental performance in health outcomes as well as their overall condition.

Almost half of the states and union territories have failed to reach even half a mark in the overall composite index score.

Categories

  1. Top ranked ‘Big states’ in overall performance – Kerala and Tamil Nadu, and smaller states – Mizoram and Tripura, UTs – Dadra and Nagar Haveli, Daman and Diu and Chandigarh
  2. Top ranked large states in annual incremental performance – Uttar Pradesh, Assam and Telangana, and smaller states – Mizoram and Meghalaya, UTs – Delhi and Jammu and Kashmir
