Prevention Effectiveness

A Guide to Decision Analysis and Economic Evaluation

Second Edition

Edited by Anne C. Haddix, Steven M. Teutsch, and Phaedra S. Corso

As public accountability has increased and resources have become scarcer, public health, like clinical medicine, has been forced to re-examine the benefits and costs of its activities. Decision and economic analysis are basic tools in carrying out that mission. These methods have become standard practice in clinical medicine and health service research. This book, now in its second edition, was written in an effort to apply and adapt that experience to public health situations.
