Conflict and Levels of Health Achievement

Conflict and Levels of Health Achievement

(p.53) 4 Conflict and Levels of Health Achievement
War and the Health of Nations
Stanford University Press

This chapter examines the effect of militarized conflict on the populations of states by evaluating the relationship between war and public health. It investigates how levels of public health decline due to conflict in the short term and the long run, how national wealth affects health outputs, and how democracy is associated with population well-being. The analysis reveals that conflict can undermine health, that a number of political and economic factors are important in assessing the effect of conflict on health, and that the influence of these factors varies across countries with differing characteristics.

Keywords:   militarized conflict, populations of states, war, public health, national wealth, health outputs, population well-being
