Health is an investment in a nation’s wellbeing and a vehicle for national value creation. Healthy girls and boys go to school, healthy women and men contribute to society, live longer and lead more productive lives.

There is a direct benefit to investment in healthcare and unlocking economic growth.
If only it was that simple.
