Abstract

Ichiro Kawachi suggests that studies of social capital and health indicate that community trust and networks can improve health. Although there is no a priori basis for assuming that social capital will always lead to good health, he suggests that investment in social capital for human development by strengthening social networks, building social organizations, strengthening community ties and strengthening civil society could well lead to improved health for the poor.
