Are people willing to pay for a community-based preventive program.
This pilot study is the first known attempt to test the willingness-to-pay or willingness-to-accept (WTP/WTA) method of assessment on a community-based primary prevention program against cardiovascular disease.
The results indicate that the population's perceived WTA outweighs the program's costs by at least three to one.
However, the methodological problems of using the WTP/WTA method in community-based programs are far from solved, and further research in this area is required.
