"Health Systems, Health and Wealth"

Health and wealth are intrinsically entwined. The wealthier we are as individuals and as countries, and the better our working and living conditions, the more likely we are to enjoy good health. Good health also contributes to economic development and wealth at both the individual and the national levels. If we are healthy, we are more likely to be in work and be productive, less likely to retire early and, of course, be happier. So, investing in effective health systems should improve people’s health, leading in turn to economic development and greater social well-being.
