Cost-Benefit Analysis of Environmental Health Interventions
Coordonnateur : Guerriero Carla
Cost-Benefit Analysis of Environmental Health Interventions provides a step-by-step approach to assigning monetary values to health interventions by using environmental information and epidemiological evidence. The book's authors articulate the core principles and fundamental methodologies underpinning the modern economic assessment of environmental intervention on human health. They summarize environmental risk factors and explore ways to interpret and understand epidemiological data. With concentration-response, exposure-response, and dose-response techniques, they explain the environmental interventions available for each environmental risk factor.
Including extensive case studies and end of chapter exercises, this book is accompanied by a website that provides solution files and details the design of models using Excel.
A practical guide for health economists and related professionals interested in assessing the economic impact of environmental influences on human health
