The Central Bureau of Health Intelligence (CBHI) has been releasing its annual publication

“National Health Profile (NHP)” on a regular basis since 2005. It involves prolonged, systematic and

genuineefforts tocollect anenormous amount of national data fromtheDirectoratesofHealth&Family

Welfare of all the 36 States/UTs, Central Government Organizations, National Health Programmes and

various other concerned national and international agencies in India.

This publication of vital national significance brings out very substantial Health Information

under six major indicators viz. Demographic, Socio-Economic, Health Status, Health Finance, Health

Infrastructure and Human Resources for the specified calendar year and much more relevant

information required for an efficient public health system in our country. The sources as well as

shortcomings of the data are also indicated.

The 13


edition of NHP includes updated information from concerned State/UTs, Central

Government Ministries and other organizations/agencies. It is expected that this national reference

document shall be of immense support to all concerned government departments & institutions,

public sector enterprises, non-government organizations, policy makers, planners, administrators,

managers, researchers and academicians for a strong and efficient health system in India.

I would like to appreciate Director, CBHI and her entire team for timely publication of this 13th

edition of National Heath Profile. The ideas for further improvement of this publication will be highly

appreciated and may kindly be shared with CBHI, Directorate General of Health Services, Government

of India.
