According to the NITI Aayog Health Index report for 2019-20 released on Monday, Telangana was among the top five larger States in the country, to have demonstrated strong overall performance as well as incremental performance.

The State Health Index is an annual tool to assess the performance of states and UTs. It is a weighted composite index based on 24 indicators grouped under the domains of ‘Health Outcomes’, ‘Governance and Information’, and ‘Key Inputs/Processes’. Each domain has been assigned weights based on its importance with a higher score for outcome indicators.
