FP Virtual Dialogue: At the Nexus of Health Care & Infrastructure
June 25, 2020
Making Health-Wise Investments for Global Development
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought to the forefront the fragility of healthcare infrastructure in many developing nations: From basic public health programs to treating complex diseases, supportive infrastructure is vital. Effective hand washing is impossible without clean water and sanitation; ventilators can’t work without electricity; and without roads, ambulances can’t reach people in need. As governments look at controlling the pandemic and building resilience for a post-COVID world, investment in infrastructure is paramount to the health and well-being of communities and to the economic development of countries.
FP and the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) explored the nexus of infrastructure and health care. The conversation highlighted how targeted infrastructure investment helps save lives and advances impactful strategies for resilience and poverty reduction through economic growth.
