Save the Children
The past few years have seen a sea change in how the world invests; its young people, well beyond early childhood and all the way into their transition towards adulthood. As the World Bank’s Human Capital Index shows, people are an economy’s main source of wealth, yet very undervalued in low and middle-income contexts (LMICs). This underachievement of human capital is reflected in young people’s health, knowledge, and resilience.
Commemorating World Health Day and its clarion call for universal health care, we invite co-authors of a Discussion Paper on Health, Finance, and Governance for USAID to share their knowledge and recommendations for maximizing human capital through school health.
The School Health and Nutrition webinar series monthly presentations by leading policy-makers, researchers and implementers engaged in improving the health and education of children in low and middle-income countries across the globe.
