Abstract

Although evidence for the connection between health and the economy is increasing, most countries have still not been able to exploit this link fully by instituting effective public policies. However, the Report of the Commission on Macroeconomics and Health (CMH), released in December 2001, provides governments and citizens alike with an invaluable tool for formulating more effective policies to fortify the myriad complementarities between health and the economy.
