The only runner behind Kerala stands Himachal with their cost per capita of Rs 6.496.

The submitted report for 2018-19 of the Union health and family welfare ministry, released on Monday also passed a distinction to Kerala on comparison with their neighbouring southern states putting behind Karnataka(Rs 4,878),Tamil Nadu(Rs 4,311),Telangana(Rs 4,130)and Andhra Pradesh(Rs 4,967)at a much considerable difference.
