Health, Nutrition, Population (HNP) Sector Strategy (1997)

Good health, nutrition, and reproductive policies, and effective health services, are critical links in the chain of events that allow countries to break out of the vicious circle of poverty, high fertility, poor health, and low economic growth, replacing this with a virtuous circle of greater productivity, low fertility, better health, and rising incomes. This Sector Strategy paper presents the World Bank's strategy in the health, nutrition, and population (HNP) area.
