Health and Human Development


Health and Human Development are often coupled. The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) annually publishes a Global Human Development Report. There are also National Human Development Reports (NHDRs) produced in 135 countries, and 31 regional reports. The NHDRs include a Human Development Index made up of statistical indicators of income, health, and education. “Twenty years after the appearance of the first Human Development Report, there is much to celebrate in what has been achieved. But we also have to be alive to ways of improving the assessment of old adversities and of recognizing—and responding to—new threats that endanger human well-being and freedom.“ Amartya Sen, Human Development Report 2010 (20th Anniversary Edition) (p. vii).
