The world is now facing a pandemic crisis of COVID-19. This pandemic has awakened the consciousness of many countries that have not prioritized their public health and prevention policies and practices. European countries were devastated by Covid-19, and the United States of America (U.S.A.) is presently the country with the highest number of cases and fatalities. It is the time for many countries to reassess the importance of public health and preventive strategies. This is also the time for large economies to consider a reallocation resources from military establishment to public health preventive initiatives. The study is secondary research and aims to analyze how countries have invested resources in prevention and public health.
