In 2008, the World Bank estimated that 3 billion people—half of the world—lives on less than $2.50 a day. Although numerous factors are to blame, the correlation between poverty and poor health is well established. Education and literacy help women and girls escape the cycle of poverty, benefitting not only themselves, but their families and communities. Improving the health of women and girls is necessary for communities to emerge from poverty. Similarly, efforts to eradicate poverty may also result in improved health.
