The Human Capital Index (HCI) is a metric that benchmarks the main components of human capital across countries on the basis of knowledge, skills, and health that people accumulate over a lifetime. This report highlights how health and education outcomes shape the productivity of next-generation citizens. Today, in the context of COVID-19 when several countries are experiencing a reversal of progress in human capital, HCI has become ever more relevant. Rigorous and bold policies can drive a resilient recovery from the pandemic by reorienting future generations to tackle the vast challenges that lie ahead. Realizing this potential in each child is the goal of HCI as espoused in this report. It can be used by policymakers considering the expansion of health service coverage and quality amongst marginalized communities.
