Webinar: Health, Resilience and Sustainable Poverty Escapes

How can vulnerable households sustain an escape from poverty, weathering the ongoing and multiple shocks and stresses that they will face over their lifetimes? From a mixed-method country case studies analysis, CPAN has contributed to expand the understanding of the drivers of sustained poverty escapes across contexts. In this webinar CPAN presented the research key findings and especially how health matters when it comes to poverty escapes. This included a better understanding of health shocks and health as resilience capacity that protects individuals, households, and communities when poverty escapes are the primary outcome.
