I wonder if the Bank has considered a possible negative spiral of poverty alleviation efforts (improved health - less mortality of children - more population - more poverty - more investment for the poor - improved health). To reverse this negative spiral of poverty alleviation efforts, I think it critical to focus on family planning together with investments for health of the poor. In this regard, maternal education and vocational training are important measures to stem the negative spiral. I hope that Bank will consider this in its future investments to reduce poverty less than 3% by 2030.
