Estimated national spending on prevention--United States, 1988.

Abstract

Despite the overall health improvements achieved through preventive interventions, the United States continues to be burdened by preventable illness, injury, and disability (1). For example, annual health-care expenditures for cardiovascular disease alone exceed $135 billion and injury and disability, $170 billion (1). This report summarizes the findings of a study to estimate national funding for health promotion and disease prevention in the United States during 1988 (2).
