This analytical paper discusses the evolution of healthcare economics in society. Looking at how society has evolved as well, the paper parallels the two factors to help create a picture of it whether healthcare finances have gone and where they will go. Divided into the various sections of the paper are the various costs that healthcare must consider when providing appropriate care with the highest functionality and the lowest cost.

Intervention A - Purifying Waters to Reduce Carcinogens
Direct Costs
Indirect Costs
Intervention B - Creating and Administering a Vaccine that Protects against Cancer
Direct Costs
Indirect Costs

From the Paper:

"As society evolves, its illnesses also suffer modifications. Whilst cures have been found for the diseases which killed millions of people during the Middle Ages, new affections have emerged to pose new threats. Cancer is today the second largest cause of death among the population, surpassed only by heart diseases and followed by cardiovascular diseases, chronic respiratory diseases and accidents (Center for Disease Control and Prevention, 2009). This situation forces the authorities and the researchers to invest in identifying cures and solutions for cancer. Two potential solutions are currently available. The first sees the purifying of drinking water, which already contains increased levels of carcinogens and the solution could halve the incidence of the disease. The second alternative is that of developing and administering a vaccine that would entirely eliminate cancer, but would cause the individual sleepiness and inability to work for one week. In this context, the question that is being posed refers to the costs incurred by the implementation of each strategy."
