Health for All: Transforming Economies to Deliver What Matters

>> Read report


The World Health Organization (WHO) Council on the Economics of Health for All was established in late 2020 to reassess how health and wellbeing are valued, produced and distributed across the economy.

This all-female group of 10 distinguished economists and area experts, including PERI's Jayati Ghosh, has focused on reimagining how to put Health for All at the heart of government decision-making and private sector collaboration at regional, national and international levels.

This report is a culmination of their work and provides a new framework built on four pillars, with specific recommendations under each. The four pillars include:

1) Value - valuing and measuring what matters through new economic metrics;
2) Finance - how to finance health for all as a long-term investment, not a short-term cost;
3) Innovation - how to advance health innovation for the common good;
4) Capacity - how to strengthen dynamic public sector capacity to achieve health for all.
