WHO Council on the Economics of Health For All
The WHO Council on the Economics of Health For All aims to reframe health for all as a public policy objective, and ensure that national and global economies and finance are structured in such a way to deliver on this ambitious goal. The Council will aim to create a body of work that sees investment in local and global health systems as an investment in the future, not as a short-term cost.
“Health for all must be at the heart of government investment and innovation decisions—and it must be governed with the common good in mind. The Council will work to address these many challenges and offer the world a path forward.”
– UCL Professor Mariana Mazzucato, Chair, WHO Council on the Economics of Health for All
