BRIEF

Health Systems Create Healthy Futures: Meet Maya

May 24, 2013


Meet Maya, a child born in a low-income country whose healthy development is the result of strong health systems.

Health systems create healthy futures, and strengthening health systems is at the center of the World Bank's strategy for health, nutrition, and population. We don't focus only on one disease or condition, we look at health as a whole -- what is preventing people from being healthy, how we can change this, and what impact it will have on development.

  • “Meet Maya” —addresses healthy deliveries as a result of strong health systems.
  • “Maya's Second Birthday” — looks at the importance of good childhood nutrition and family planning.
  • “Get Well, Maya” —discusses the benefits of universal health coverage.
