Public Health: Save Lives, Save Money

Public Health is all around us

When you drink water ...

Every $1 invested in fluoridated water has a $40 return in dental care.

When you're heading places ...

Every $1 invested in a child safety seat has a $42 return in avoided medical costs.

Seat belts save thousands of lives each year, and increasing use would save thousands more. Each year seat belts save about 13,000 in the U.S.

When children are at school ...

Every $1 invested in early education and quality care has up to a $13 return in future costs.

And when you are at work ...

Every $1 invested in an effective workplace safety program may save $4 to $6 in avoided illnesses, injuries, and fatalities.

When you're on the move ...

Every $1 invested in biking and walking opportunities can return benefits up to $11.80.

Every $1 invested in food and nutrition education has a $10 return in reduced health care costs

Get your checkup ...

Childhood immunizations save $9.9 million in direct health care costs, saves 33,000 lives and prevent 14 million cases of disease.

And while you enjoy your free-time ...

For every $1 spent on providing tobacco cessation programs the potential ROI is $1.26. In one year the U.S. could save $711 million.

If 10 percent of adults began regularly walking, $5.6 billion in heart disease costs would be averted.

Public health is a return on investment: Prioritize public health funding.
