Public health as an important factor in country's economic well-being

Public health is the key to its prosperity, including economic prosperity. Research shows that when the state pays special attention to the health of citizens and invests in health care, it leads to economic growth and poverty reduction. Simply put, healthy people work more productively and spend less time on sick leave. Good health allows older people to work longer, and healthy schoolchildren and students learn better and, therefore, become good professionals. Therefore, it's very important to have a government program that will encourage people to lead a healthy lifestyle, take care of disease prevention, and take care of children's health. This is exactly what the "Healthy Ukraine" program does.
