Kerala has topped among the larger states in overall health performance in the fourth edition of the State Health Index for 2019-20 released by Niti Aayog here on Monday.
"On overall ranking based on the composite index score in 2019-20, the top-ranking states were Kerala and Tamil Nadu among the 'Larger States', Mizoram and Tripura among the 'Smaller States', and DH&DD and Chandigarh among the UTs", said the report.
The report titled 'Healthy States, Progressive India' ranks states and Union Territories on their year-on-year incremental performance in health outcomes as well as their overall status. The fourth round of the report focuses on measuring and highlighting the overall performance and incremental improvement of states and UTs over the period 2018-19 to 2019-20.

The report was released jointly by Niti Aayog CEO Amitabh Kant, Vice Chairman Dr Rajiv Kumar, Additional Secretary Dr Rakesh Sarwal, and World Bank Senior Health Specialist Sheena Chhabra. The report has been developed by Niti Aayog, with technical assistance from the World Bank, and in close consultation with the Union Health Ministry.
To ensure comparison among similar entities, the ranking in the report has been categorized as 'Larger States', 'Smaller States' and 'Union Territories'. Among the 'Larger States', in terms of annual incremental performance, Uttar Pradesh, Assam and Telangana are the top three ranking states. Mizoram and Meghalaya registered the maximum annual incremental progress among 'Smaller States'. Delhi, followed by Jammu and Kashmir among UTs showed the best incremental performance.
"States are beginning to take cognizance of indices such as the State Health Index and use them in their policymaking and resource allocation. This report is an example of both competitive and cooperative federalism," said Dr Rajiv Kumar while releasing the report.
Amitabh Kant said, "Our objective through this index is to not just look at the states' historical performance but also their incremental performance". The index encourages healthy competition and cross-learning among states and UTs, he added.

Himachal Pradesh Urban Development Minister Suresh Bhardwaj said on Wednesday that summer capital Shimla was ranked first under the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Urban Index by the NITI Aayog.
The index took into account 56 urban areas for measuring SDGs indicators in areas related to ending poverty, zero hunger, good health and well-being, quality education, gender equality, etc.
Shimla has secured the first rank with 75.50 marks out of 100 for this year.
The minister said the statistical methodology for the SDG Urban Index is drawn from the globally accepted methodology developed by the Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN).
A comprehensive list of 77 indicators, covering 46 global SDG targets across 15 SDGs, are used in the index.
Shimla was also ranked most liveable among the cities across the country under Ease of Living Index ranking which was issued earlier this year. This was based on the assessment of four parameters -- quality of life, economic ability, sustainability and citizen perception. (IANS/JB)

As many as 7 districts of Uttar Pradesh have found a place in the top 10 best-performing aspirational districts in the 'delta ranking' released by NITI Aayog for the month of August 2021.
As many as 112 districts across the country have been included in the NITI Aayog's 'Transformation of Aspirational Districts' Programme which is assessed based on incremental progress made across 49 Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) under 5 broad socio-economic themes - health and nutrition, education, agriculture and water resources, financial inclusion and skill development and infrastructure.
The districts namely, Siddhartha Nagar, Bahraich, Sonbhadra, Shravasti, Fatehpur, Chitrakoot and Chandauli have been placed in the top-10 districts.
The ranking was released by NITI Aayog through its real-time monitoring dashboard.
The delta ranking signifies the efforts undertaken by the state government and the respective district magistrates to develop and improve the under-developed districts.
Fatehpur, working on the set standards of NITI Aayog, has achieved second place in the field of development in the whole country, followed by Siddhartha Nagar at the third place, Sonbhadra at fourth, Chitrakoot at fifth, Bahraich at seventh, Shravasti at eighth and Chandauli at ninth position.
Among the aspirational districts of Uttar Pradesh, Chitrakoot and Bahraich have excelled on the standards of NITI Aayog.
As a result, the NITI Aayog has allocated an additional budget to these districts for development works.
It is worth mentioning here that Prime Minister Narendra Modi had launched the Aspirational Districts Programme in January 2018 as part of the government's effort to raise the living standards of its citizens and ensure inclusive growth for all, 'Sabka Saath Sabka Vikas aur Sabka Vishwas'. The programme aims at the development of backward districts.
The ranking of aspirational districts is done every month. (IANS/JB)
