Out of 195 countries analysed for the study, India is ranked 154th.

However, it is not good enough as the numbers are far behind than its neighbouring countries such as Sri Lanka (72.8), Bangladesh (51.7), Bhutan (52.7) and Nepal (50.8). However, it underperformed in the areas of tuberculosis, diabetes, rheumatic heart diseases and chronic kidney disease. Pakistan is below India with 43.1 points.

Meanwhile, the study shows that even among countries of similar development levels, there is wide variation in healthcare access and quality.

China, with a score of 74 on the index, has been ranked at 82 - far ahead of India, and Sri Lanka has scored 73 on the index.

The study indicates that despite a boost in socio-economic development, India has failed to achieve its healthcare goals and the gap between the predicted and the actual score has only been widening over the last 25 years.
