A new brief from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, Return on Investment -- Saving Lives and Money. "Creating a culture of health in the United States requires a commitment to prevention. Preventing disease and injury is the most cost-effective, common-sense way to improve health; despite this fact, for every dollar spent on health care in the United States today, only about four cents goes towards public health and prevention. A variety of recent reports and studies show that strategic investments in proven, community-based prevention programs save lives and money. This brief summarizes the findings from major studies on public health and prevention released between 2008 and 2013."
