These three states top in Niti Aayog’s health index report


Kerala, Andhra Pradesh and Maharashtra have emerged as the top ranking states based on historical performance across health indicators while Haryana, Rajasthan and Jharkhand top the index based on incremental performance in the second edition of health index launched by NITI Aayog on Tuesday. The health index is a composite measure of states and union territories based on 23 health indicators with major weightage to outcomes.

Kerala, Punjab, and Tamil Nadu had ranked on top in terms of overall performance, while Jharkhand, Jammu & Kashmir, and Uttar Pradesh were the top three ranking states in terms of annual incremental performance in the first ranking of states on health parameters which was published in February 2018.

The second edition of the report focuses on measuring the overall performance and incremental improvement over a two-year period (2016-17 and 2017-18) in the states and UTs.


It takes a comprehensive look at health in terms of health outcomes, governance and processes and impact of policy interventions. The report has been prepared in collaboration with the ministry of health and family welfare (MoHFW) and with technical assistance from the World Bank.
