Public Health – Great Return on Investment
Supporting investment in evidence-based public health programs will result in healthier communities and reduced cost in treating diseases. Investing just $10 per person each year in community-based public health activities could save more than $16 billion within five years. Many lives are saved thanks to vaccines and investments in public health systems coincide with improvements in health, especially in children’s health.
Good health doesn’t happen by chance. Good health is shaped and nurtured — it’s connected to the environments in which we live, work and play. Public health has a role in all of our lives. It’s tied to the resources available in our communities; and research shows that it’s undoubtedly linked to a person’s access to health care. These are the intersections where you find public health and prevention.
