Abstract: India is among one of those countries where the health of the people is deprived, and the healthcare facilities are inadequate and insufficient. These problems can be only solved when the micro-level planning and its implementation will be done on local level. Though India has a large and organised healthcare system, divided into primary, secondary and tertiary levels but still the situation of health and healthcare facilities is crucial. Annual Health Survey Report 2012-13 conducted the survey across 282 districts of 9 states and ranked them according to their performance in health and healthcare facilities. The present study has been carried out to know the situation of health and healthcare facilities in Mau, Azamgarh and Varanasi district of Uttar Pradesh. Mau has been taken into primary consideration and has been compared with the other two districts. These three district shows some similarities in their socioeconomic characteristics. The data of 10 health and healthcare facilities have been obtained from the AHS 2012-13 and compared by their ranking and the index. The data shows that Mau is deprived in all the fields of health and healthcare facilities taken by the Annual Health Survey except one as compare to the Azamgarh and Varanasi.
