Health and poverty reduction are both usually understood in relation to income or physical well-being.

In a recent history of policy debates in WHO and the World Bank, he shows how health and poverty have to be seen as multidimensional and inherently political in order for them to be effective and sustainable.Development (2004) 47, 109–114. doi:10.1057/palgrave.development.1100037
