Cross-government Prosperity Fund
Better Health Programme
IATI Identifier: GB-GOV-50-PF-20-BHP
The programme aims are to increase life expectancy, improve productivity and deliver economic growth in the partner countries set out above. To achieve this high level impact it has two overarching health goals: • To tackle the issue of premature death and illness due to Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs) like diabetes and heart disease, which account for 74% of premature fatalities in lower and middle income countries (LMICs). • To reduce incidents of premature mortality (e.g. infections contracted in hospitals) by improving health care outcomes. Meeting these objectives will help advance economic development in the partner countries but will also create opportunities for international and UK businesses as a secondary benefit. It also helps advance our National Security Strategy and UK Aid Strategy objectives.
