Investment in health is a fundamental element of any strategy to reduce poverty. It makes a crucial contribution to economic development and social protection. In an efficient and effective health system medical care is appropriate, acceptable, effective and universally available. Improved health care helps lower morbidity and mortality rates within the population. Without hospitals there can be no social and economic development. Hospital performance is key to a health system’s effectiveness.
