Investing in Health and Economic Prosperity Funded by RDPAC



Based on multi-year data for 21 APEC member-states, this study concluded with three key takeaway messages. First, a healthier country has brighter prospects for its economy. Second, population health can be improved through the key factors of health production, including healthier lifestyles, better environmental conditions, and greater access to cost-effective healthcare services. Third, the development of healthcare sector can be a potential policy instrument for transitioning from a saving-based economy to a consumption-driven economy, primarily through boosting household consumption. This study offers timely insights for policy implications to transitional economies such as China.
