Abstract

India has committed to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for Goal 3 of SDGs which is about ensuring healthy lives with promoting well-being for all. National Institution for Transforming India- (NITI) Aayog had started the State Health Index initiative for ranking, comparing, states and UTs for achieving desirable health outcomes. The key objective of NITI Aayog is to track development on health, to develop healthy competition and cross learning among states and UTs. Health Index Scores and rankings are generated to assess Incremental Performance (year-to-year progress) and Overall Performance of state/UT of India for achievement of health-related Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as well as Universal Health Coverage (UHC). This novel study second was a cross-sectional retrospective observational study. The Health Index consists of a set of indicators in the domains of Health Outcomes, Governance and Information, and Key Inputs/Processes. Health Outcomes are assigned the highest weight in this study; indicators were selected on the basis of their importance and availability of reliable data at least annually from pre- existing data sources such as the Sample Registration System (SRS), Civil Registration System (CRS) and Health Management Information Systems (HMIS). Data on indicators is included for Index calculations only after validation by the IVA.
