The return on investment of public health programs

The American Public Health Association just released an infographic highlighting the many ways investing in health programs helps save lives & reduce morbidity.  I particularly love that at the bottom of their page with the infographic the cite their sources, which I wish more visual artists would include in their infographics. That way, we can find out where stats like “75% percent of US health spending is on preventable chronic conditions” actually come from.
