Abstract:

Household surveys show that being in good health is an important determinant of the well‐being of people. Healthier people also tend to enjoy better access to the education system and to be more productive for a longer period of their life, thus supporting economic growth. Being in good health depends partly on life‐style choices and socioeconomic factors. But treating illnesses in an effective way is also very important in this respect and a crucial determinant of longevity, which has risen rapidly ‐ by four years on average in the OECD since 1990.
