MetadataShow full item record
"This article will explore the level of development through the prism of health capital and its relationship to democracy. Particularly, it will look at the claim made by Rashid that the marginalization of the FATA [Federally Administered Tribal Areas] stems from a lack of political involvement, or democratic freedoms. A short summary of the concept of health capital and why it is important will be presented. Next, the article will compare indicators of health capital in FATA and greater Pakistan. This will be followed by examples offering a glimpse of the correlation between health capital and democratic freedoms. Finally, it will explore other factors which may contribute to the low level of health capital in the FATA."
