Description
 
The nationís public health system is responsible for improving the health of Americans. However, the public health system has been chronically underfunded in the U.S. This report examines how much the federal government spends to try to keep the country well. A state-by-state review of FY 2008 spending reveals that federal funding (through the CDC) for public health varies, often significantly, with a per capital low of $12.74 to a per capita of $52.78. The national average is $17.60 per person, a fraction of what is spent on health care costs. The report also examines state funding for public health. Extensive statistical information.
