The Health and Economic Benefits of Reducing Disease Risk Factors: Research Report July 2009
Report Synopsis: The health and economic benefits of reducing disease risk factors
This report by Vic Health estimates the ‘health status’, ‘economic’ and ‘financial’ benefits of reducing the prevalence of the six behavioural risk factors that contribute to chronic diseases affecting millions of Australians: obesity, alcohol, smoking, exercise, diet and domestic violence. It maps new territory by developing a model for estimating the benefits of our home-based work and leisure and adds to the growing body of evidence that backs greater investment in preventative health. It provides a wealth of information that can help us to make informed decisions about which areas deliver the greatest value when developing policies, funding programs and infrastructure, and initiating research.
