Turning life into life expectancy: the efficiency of life-saving interventions
by Niels Lind
International Journal of Risk Assessment and Management (IJRAM), Vol. 7, No. 6/7, 2007

Abstract: A life-saving intervention, if truly it is to save life, should yield more life expectancy in good health than the amount of work time it takes to pay for it. Together with available cost-effectiveness data, this 'Time Principle' permits a separation of the efficient from the inefficient options among all life-saving interventions. The majority of known options for intervention are efficient according to the Time Principle.
