Abstract

Good health is a basic human right, yet many people in developing countries suffer illness and death from causes that can be easily prevented or cured. How can we close the gap between potential benefits available from medical advances and the health of poor in a most effective way? This book addresses these basic questions in the field of health and development, providing insights from a case study in lung health, developing new analytical methods.

The book presents an economic evaluation of the World Health Organizations Practical Approach to Lung Health (PAL) in rural Nepal. The detailed picture to emerge from this study offers new perspectives on efforts to improve health in poor developing countries. In addition to the case study, the book also presents a new analytical method for studying health in similar contexts. This approach, based on a multi-state framework, offers a potentially significant step forward in the field of health status modeling in the developing world contexts.
