Booknews
Analyzes 21 nations and provides a basis for measuring the health effects of pharmaceutical consumption, in an attempt to assist the debate on how to allocate resources among various health care goods and services, and between health care and other goods and services. The study proves that there is a measurable health return to higher consumption of pharmaceuticals, especially at middle age and beyond, and that pharmaceutical use correlates with health care cost savings.
