  4. 4. Community Empowerment Through Medical Help - A Case Study Nobel Laureate Amartya Sen postulates that: “Health (like education) is among the basic capabilities that gives value to human life. The wealth of any nation can be measured by the health status of its citizens. This is in true confirmation of the popular adage which affirms that “Health is Wealth”. “
  5. 5. Community Empowerment Through Medical Help - A Case Study According to World Bank (2005) Fifty percent of economic growth differentials between developed and developing nations are attributed to ill-health and low life expectancy. The world’s central framework for reducing poverty is expressed in UN’s eight Millennium Development Goals. Three of these eight goals pertain to health: reducing child mortality, improving maternal health and combating HIV/AIDS, malaria, and other diseases. These potentially huge improvements in health are extremely important goals in themselves, and they serve as instruments for achieving economic growth and reducing poverty.
  6. 6. Community Empowerment Through Medical Help - A Case Study In other words, health is a fundamental driver for economic growth and development. Together with education, they are the most important sectors where public attention should be focused in order to ensure greater human development. Public health concerns itself with the protection and improvement of the health of entire populations through community-wide actions primarily by governmental agencies.
  7. 7. Community Empowerment Through Medical Help - A Case Study Developed countries spend a high proportion of their Gross Domestic Product (GDP) on public health care because they believe that their resident health can serve as a major driver for economic activities and development while societies with a heavy burden of disease as a result of poor health spending tend to experience a multiplicity of severe impediments to economic development.
