LABORI RUIZ, José Rafael. Essential functions of public health and their relation to health economics. MEDISAN [online]. 2012, vol.16, n.9, pp.1462-1465. ISSN 1029-3019.

It is stated that currently most of the countries are absorbed in sector reforms in a globalized world, where the issue of public health costs is of concern for governments and health professionals. The optimal balance between the specificity of each function and the effective integration of the common aspects is a rule for the administration of the essential functions of public health. Also, each function has its own functional identity and specific processes, which generate specific products and results that share common economic resources. Also, they complement each other with the purpose of making decisions to become more complex.

Keywords : economics; integration; essential functions of public health.
