The commission, set up by Dr Gro Harlem Bruntland, Director General of the World Health Organisation, has been given two years to consolidate the evidence and provide practical recommendations on how investment in health can promote economic growth and reduce poverty and inequality. Nine of the 15-member committee come from developing countries.
