Evaluating the Impact of Health Programmes on Productivity

Publication Abstract

Keswell, M., J. Burns, and Rebecca L. Thornton. 2012. "Evaluating the Impact of Health Programmes on Productivity." African Development Review, 24(4): 302-315.

This article reviews some of the key methodological approaches available to researchers interested in identifying a causal relationship between health interventions and economic indicators of productivity. We then discuss some of the empirical work that has utilized these techniques in making the case for a causal relationship from health interventions to productivity. We conclude that while considerable progress has been made in addressing concerns over attribution, much work remains to be done in expanding our knowledge of why certain interventions work whilst others do not.
