Economic progress and health
This chapter discusses the close association between economic progress and health. It argues that at the social level, the connection is weakened by two major influences. First, much depends on how the income generated by economic growth is used, in particular, whether it is used to expand public service adequately and to reduce the burden of poverty. Second, even when an economy is poor, major health improvements can be achieved by using available resources in a socially productive way.
