Introduction: COVID-19 pandemic has severely affected the world and the impact is not uniformly distributed over space and among varying socio-economic, demographic and epidemiological characteristics of population. Government has undertaken several strategies to prevent the adverse impact of COVID-19. Hence, this paper attempts to critically analyse the government’s strategies in regions of India having varied vulnerabilities. Objectives: The objectives of this paper is to identify the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats of COVID-19 response model of selected states of India to highlight the lessons learned for dealing with future pandemics. Also, emphasis has been given to analyse the role of vulnerabilities as part of government’s strategies. Methodology: A SWOT analysis has been performed in this paper through understanding of vulnerabilities and COVID response model of three states of India. The selected states are Madhya Pradesh, Telangana and Nagaland having highest overall COVID-19 vulnerability index among the EAG, Non-EAG and North-Eastern states respectively as formulated by Acharya & Porwal, 2020. The information and data has been collected through government websites of each state and several reports like Rural Health Statistics, National Health Profile etc has been referred. Critical Findings: The findings of this paper reveal that the EAG states of India have higher socio-economic vulnerabilities; on the other hand, Non-EAG states have higher demographic and epidemiological vulnerabilities. The government response model of each of the state largely followed the government guidelines rather than assessment of their own community needs. Very little efforts have been made to address the state-specific vulnerabilities. Conclusion: It can be concluded from this paper that there is a need for region-specific strategies for combating the pandemic as each region have their own different needs and vulnerabilities. Further, identified strengths and opportunities should be encouraged and attention should be given on weaknesses and threats.
