The business case for public health: Compelling returns on investment
Public health can struggle to attract funding and faces challenges making a business case for investment. Being the “unsexy” side of healthcare, public health is often bottom of the pile once headline grabbing issues like hospital waiting lists and A&E trolleys grab additional funding. It means that the local case for funding is often difficult to make even when the economic case is compelling. Jacque makes the case for investment in public health with supporting evidence from Croi’s MyAction in Galway, a community-based prevention model to improve cardiovascular healthcare.
