Executive Summary

Disease prevention procedures and awareness programmes are allocated just 3% of healthcare budgets in the 30 member countries of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). The low percentage is surprising given the international awareness of the positive impact that such measures can make. The OECD publication Health at a Glance - OECD Indicators 2005, provides the example of the Netherlands, which in 2003 witnessed almost 80% of older patients coming forward for immunisation against influenza after an awareness drive.
