According to reports from beijingPeople Republic of China, by NewsRx reporters, the research said, “Investing in family education is a key factor in reducing the intergenerational transmission of poverty. At the cost of higher health risk, the poor can overload their bodies to earn more money to invest in education.

Reporters got a quote from the research of the Central University of Finance and Economics, “This study examines the effect of physical overdraft, health risks and health insurance on poverty and economic growth. This article proposes a model for the economic development of endogenous health risks and poverty by implementing a physical overdraft decision. In addition, we introduce a mutual health insurance mechanism to analyze its effects on poverty reduction. First, this study shows that health risks weaken the economy and are among the main causes of poverty. Second, health mutuals can mitigate, but not completely eliminate, the negative impact of health risks on the economy. Third, appropriate health insurance arrangements can lift some or even all poor households out of poverty. Health risks have a significant effect on poverty.

According to the journalists, the research concluded, “Additionally, health insurance mechanisms have the benefit of transferring health risks, reducing poverty and improving health equity.”
