About the Biennial Conference of the Edinburgh Centre for Medical Anthropology, 2018
Staying healthy and recovering from sickness comes at a price. Staying ill means losing time, losing money, losing productivity. Seeing doctors, buying drugs, investing in future health, all cost money.
People’s willingness to pay can be elicited, benefits need to be maximized while costs need to be minimized. Return of investments in health are measured for individuals and whole populations.
