Health, Resilience and Sustainable Poverty Escapes
Health intersects with resilience and sustained poverty escapes in at least three ways. Poor health reduces well-being and can be a shock or stressor at the individual, household, community or systems level. It can also act as an important form of human capital, a resilience capacity that protects outcomes over time in the face of adversity. Moreover, health is an outcome in and of itself that needs to be protected.
