Economic Outlook on Health

Fundamental principles: Evidence for Health (“Evidence for Health”), or the best scientific evidence to be integrated in all political decisions concerning the health of people; Health in all policies (“Health in all policies”), because people’s health must guide all policies, not only sanitary, but also industrial, environmental, social, economic and fiscal; Value for money (“enhancement of the money used”), because obtaining the maximum return in terms of health from money invested in health is, at the same time, an ethical mandate and an economic objective of a health care system.
