dc.description.abstractThis book analyses how health conditionality can become an essential component of economic decision-making. It illustrates how the vital health objectives of protection and improvement of health status and quality of life can be defined at the very outset along with the macroeconomic objectives, and that the processes of adjustment can achieve both sets of objectives simultaneously. It also provides examples of how health status protection and promotion can acquire an intrinsic value in the lives of all people, but especially in the lives of the vulnerable and the marginalizeden_US
