    • Description:
      For the foreseeable future, public health professionals can expect fiscal concerns to heavily influence health and prevention policies. Without a thorough understanding of the costs and the impact of health services, we run the risk of losing resources to provide these services. No matter how compelling the arguments of need, equity, or compassion are, policymakers will need evidence of economic efficiency to accompany information on health improvement. Without such cost-related data, those of us who advocate for the health and well-being of women and children will be diminished in our effectiveness. To address this need, the Division of Reproductive Health, National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, has assembled relevant literature on economic issues in reproductive health. This annotated bibliography covers published reports from 1980 to 1993 and includes 266 abstracted articles and 238 additional references. It addresses a wide range of concerns in women's and children's health and presents studies on cost-benefit, cost-effectiveness, cost utility, and other economic analyses. Along with studies of specific conditions, it includes articles related to methodology in economic analysis that will aid us all in becoming more informed users of economic reports. Although our literature search may not have identified all relevant material, we believe that this bibliography provides useful information on the state of knowledge in this field as it relates to reproductive health.
