About the HCP

The HCP aims to protect and invest in people. We host the following related webpages: About, Case Studies, , Key Reports, and Frequently Asked Questions. As of November 2023, the HCP has grown to a network of 92 committed governments participating and taking action in three distinct areas. Learn more by clicking on the topics below.

The HCI provides a new definition of human capital and quantifies the contribution of health and education to the productivity of the next generation of workers. Countries can use it to assess how much income they are foregoing because of Human Capital gaps and how much faster they can turn these losses into gains if they act now.

HCI Frequently Asked Questions

Credible measurement of education and health outcomes is critical locally, nationally, and globally. Within countries, measurement leads to insights into what works and where to target resources. It also increases policymakers’ awareness of the importance of investing in human capital, creating momentum for action. Globally, comprehensive measurement sheds light on the differences between countries and spurs demand for investments in human capital.

Case Studies

The HCP will help countries tackle the worst barriers to peoples’ development, using a “whole of government” approach. As of November 2023, the HCP has grown to a network of 92 committed governments that have expressed interest in investing in human capital at the highest levels. In addition, a number of “Human Capital Champions”—world leaders, thought leaders, celebrities, and others—have signed on to advocate for the next generation.
