In the first-ever report of its kind, the WHO Council on the Economics of Health for All has outlined a bold new path to reorient economies to deliver what matters – health for all.
The Council has put forward a bold new narrative grounded in new economic wisdom to reorient economies to deliver health for all across four interrelated themes:
- Value – valuing and measuring what matters through new economic metrics;
- Finance – how to finance health for all as a long-term investment, not a short-term cost;
- Innovation – how to advance health innovation for the common good;
- Capacity – how to strengthen dynamic public sector capacity to achieve health for all.
