WSMI welcomes the WHO Europe Report: ‘The case for investing in Public Health’

The current costs of ill health are significant for governments in Europe. Trends suggest unsustainable increases in costs unless cost-effective policies are put in place. The evidence in this report shows that prevention of chronic conditions is cost-effective in both the short and longer term. Tobacco use reduces overall national income by up to 3.6% and obesity accounts for 1–3% of total health expenditure in most countries in Europe. The availability of safe and effective non-prescription medicines, such as nicotine replacement and weight loss products help people reduce tobacco consumption and obesity and enables people to prevent disease.
