Health and Development
Chapter 14 in An Economist’s Guide to Economic History, 2018, pp 111-119 from Palgrave Macmillan
Abstract Issues related to human and health capital formation are of particular importance because interventions on this front can have a direct impact on living standards, wellbeing, and economic development. Historical evidence can be especially valuable to understanding how human and health capital is formed, and how it contributes to development. Issues discussed in this chapter include water, sanitation and hygiene, maternal and child health, and climate and the environment.
