Annotation:There will never be sufficient resources to enable all possible means of improving health to be provided to all people who might benefit. Information on health improvements resulting from possible uses of scarce resources is critical to informed decision making about where these resources should be allocated. This journal solicits articles on the costs, effectiveness, or cost-effectiveness of health interventions (a health intervention is defined broadly as any action where the primary intent is to improve health. This includes promotive, preventive, curative and rehabilitative actions at the clinical or population level). Papers focusing on an individual intervention and on the interactions between interventions undertaken at the same time will be considered.
