This paper seeks to analyse the healthcare climate within Uttar Pradesh, with special emphasis on the top 5 comparative Muslim majority districts (as % of District population) for the same. It does so by comparing the collective performance of the identified States with the state averages for Uttar Pradesh for a limited number of healthcare indices via data available from the Annual Health Survey 2011. The health indices being covered include treatment available for population diagnosed with acute illness, regularity of treatment for diagnosed chronically ill populace, extent of Ante Natal care, parameters of delivery care, facilities in terms of Post Natal care, coverage of relevant female population under JSY - Janani Suraksha Yojana, differentials among birth registration, and finally, mortality rates for infants and children. The primary focus of the paper is the situation of women and children - the sections of population that are often the last to receive healthcare in India’s deeply patriarchal society. The state of Uttar Pradesh has been chosen for a number of reasons - primary among which are the sizeable population, variation of indices across the State in terms of averages, and the availability of reliable data for a secular analysis.
