The above linkages clarifying the role of health development have two important implications for health financing and the role of health insurance in an overall health financing strategy. First, the health financing policy developed must ensure that labor productivity gains arising from preventive health care programs are widely disseminated, especially among the poor. This includes family planning and reproductive health services, which should be made available as widely as possible and in a timely manner.

These effects, simulated through 1975, included the aggregate gain of a simultaneous investment in family planning. The Over model was used to assess the economic impact of AIDS on a number of countries in Africa: here it was found that the disease may retard economic growth by an average of about 1 percent per year. Given the past economic performance in these countries, such an impact would amount to a 25 to 30 percent reduction in economic performance. The other studies have used country cross-sectional information from the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s to empirically assess the relationship between health and income growth.
