"After rigorous competition, NITI selects UP, Assam & K'taka to transform their #Health sector in 3 years! #SATH #CompetitiveFederalism," it added.
The government think tank had invited all states and UTs to participate in its SATH initiative.
Sixteen states had expressed their interest, of which 14 made their presentations to a committee headed by Niti Aayog member Bibek Debroy and comprised CEO Amitabh Kant as well as a representative from the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare.
Niti Aayog had earlier said the programme will be implemented by it along with McKinsey & Company and IPE Global consortium, who were selected through a competitive bidding process.
Under SATH, Niti will work in close collaboration with the state machinery to design a robust road map of intervention, develop a programme governance structure, set up monitoring and tracking mechanisms, hand-hold state institutions through the execution stage and provide support on a range of institutional measures to achieve the end objectives.
