Improving health through cost‐effective educational interventions
Abstract:This chapter presents an assessment of the cost‐effectiveness of educational interventions ‐ school‐based, work‐based and mass media ‐ in reducing obesity‐related disabilities. Results indicate that educational interventions via the mass media are the most cost‐effective in the short run. In the long run, however, all interventions become cost‐effective, especially in comparison to other health‐related interventions such as physician counselling and food advertisement regulations.
