Question description


In health care, we refer to prevention as avoiding or lessening the effects of disease. In other words, prevention is an effort to prevent or control disease. Disease prevention is an essential element of managed care. However, according to experts, "less than 2% of the nation's expenditure on health care is spent on population-based prevention."

What is the value of disease prevention: why bother? Conduct some additional research on disease prevention. Please be specific in your post by using concrete examples or measures to support your thoughts. Specifically address your views of "why bother" with disease prevention and respond to a fellow classmate with an opposing view, than your own.
