National health care should never be sidelined by other national factors. Every individual is entitled to receive better health care services. Eradication of diseases helps in the general well-being increasing the longevity of their lives. Many organizations have come in place to stipulate laws that will help in the improvement of national health. For instance, World Health Organization, National Business Coalition on Health (NBCH) and the insurance bodies who provide insurance to the individuals to help them cover the medical bills, they are the bodies that participate so much in the health sector (Cichon, Michael 98).
According to most studies conducted in many countries, there have been inadequate public health facilities and the ones available provide poor services. The underprivileged people in the societies are left at the mercies of their creator when they fall sick. The costs incurred in the private hospitals are so high that the low income earners cannot afford. Adequate information on health issues are not at their disposal as most of the poor people tends to be illiterate (Lemco, Jonathan 194). Some communities who still practice the barbaric acts of relying on their cultural values happen to be overcome by the diseases as some of them are against the modern medicines.
In September 2014, NBCH produced a report that was detailed about the breast cancer in the U.S. The disease has taken lives of many people and the medical expenses are so high that not many patients can avoid. The organization took it upon them to inform the people on prevention of breast cancer. Prevention is better than cure, therefore, the emphasis on prevention. The people staying with the patients were also informed on what specialized care that the patients should be provided with.
Depression has been a major disease that most people in the U.S are struggling with. It is projected that 1 out of 10 adults suffer from depression. Depression is brought about by some uncontrolled moods. Moods can either be happiness or anger. When anger and stress go to the extreme and patients are unable to control them, they lead to rheumatoid arthritis (Lemco, Jonathan 263). However, patients are encouraged to seek medical health care before its advancements. They can also opt to seek help from psychological experts who the patients can confide in since they provide counseling services.
Maternal health issues in most African countries have been on the rise. Most African mothers give birth at home, therefore, not attended by the professional midwives. The action puts at risk the lives of both the mother and the child. Infant deaths mostly occur in the households where birth does not take place at a health facility (McVeigh, Frank, and Loreen 104). However, some humanitarian organizations have come to the aid of these mothers by providing the maternal services and the necessary information as a way of discouraging them from giving birth from homes. In the recent years, the infant mortality rates have gradually declined after the introduction of the facilities.
Most of those who suffer from chronic diseases are never aware of the disease. For example, diabetes in the U.S has been rampant as above 8% of the personnel have it. The number of diabetic people is constantly rising in the U.S and it is not a best sign of the health status of the nation. However, People should be encouraged to attend the health facilities for all tests to be performed on them so as to establish them as early as possible.
