Women's Economic Imperative

Human Capital

Human capital development and deployment is critical for social inclusion, economic growth and shared prosperity.

The lack of financial resources prevents the poor from accessing health and education services. Evidence shows that children in poor households have worse human capital outcomes compared with children in rich households. 

Social norms about women’s roles shape many critical decisions related to human capital e.g., schooling, nutrition, health. These early inequalities in human capital are amplified over the life cycle and their effects are often inherited by subsequent generations. 


WEI focuses on these key elements of human capital for women and girls:

  • Health
  • Education
  • Employment and opportunities for economic participation
  • Youth, as a cross-cutting issue

Health of Women as an Economic Value​
