Health and education are the foundation for human development. It is difficult to hold a job or care for a family if one is sick, or doesn’t have relevant skills and knowledge. Expanding access to health and education services is a central element for any strategy to eliminate poverty and reduce inequality. In developing countries, the poor often turn to private sector health and education providers for access to services..
