Health is wealth.

Poor financial health is a global problem. The little measurement of financial health across the world reveals that a large percentage of the population in most countries are struggling financially. The most geographically comprehensive measurement of financial health to date comes from the WorldBank’s Global Findex, which asked questions about the resilience element of financial health in approximately 150 countries.
