The launch of the Brookings India Health Monitor. The Chief Guest is Mr CK Mishra, Secretary, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Government of India.

The Brookings India Health Monitor brings together real time data, research and powerful analytics of India’s healthcare sector on a common platform. This is created using publicly available data from across all states and Union Territories of India. It enables policy makers, corporates and researchers to access, monitor and analyse real time health measures at a highly disaggregated district level. Health indexes at state and district levels for Quality and Quantity of health infrastructure have been developed which will be updated on a real time basis. The researchers also propose to develop indexes for Maternal health, Child health, Communicable Diseases and Non-communicable Diseases for all states of India.

The aim is to democratize health data by making it publicly available through easy-to-understand, real time indexes at highly disaggregated level (district of India). Having access to this information can be helpful for local level policy makers as well as to the health industry for core business or corporate social responsibility (CSR). The informatics is already being used by the NITI Aayog and the Uttar Pradesh health ministry.
