WHO’s First Investment Case can Save up to 30 Million Lives

On September 19, the World Health Organization (WHO) laid out the potentially broad impact of global health and development through their first investment case. According to WHO, if an investment of $14.1 billion from 2019 to 2023 is made, up to 30 million lives could be saved. This could add up to 100 million years of healthy living to the world’s population and add up to 4 percent of economic growth in low and middle-income countries by 2023. Such an investment would also help achieve the “triple billion” targets of WHO’s General Programme of Work: 1 billion more people benefiting from universal health coverage; 1 billion more people better protected from health emergencies; and 1 billion more people enjoying better health and wellbeing.
