An acknowledgement of the success of the Telangana Model. As per the National Health Mission – HMIS report, Telangana is at the top place in the country with 100% institutional deliveries. The state is leading the nation in maternal and child health care.

Telangana is 1st state in the world sharing this feat with 61 other countries, as per WHO. This is the Arogya Telangana model, where we compete with other countries and race to the top.”
