Excerpt
I am respectfully submitting to you the annual report to the Congress, Health, United States, 1978, required by Section 308(a)(2) of the Public Health Service Act. As specified in the Act, the report presents data in four areas: costs and financing of health care, distribution of health care resources, utilization of health resources, and the health of the Nation’s people. In addition, several chapters dealing with issues of current concern such as child health, prevention, cost containment, and the quality of medical care are included. The report was prepared by the National Center for Health Statistics and the National Center for Health Services Research.
