As per the discussion provided in the reports, the government of US is steadily focusing on allocating funds to the healthcare sector, with a view to provide quality healthcare services to the people. However, out of six in ten mention that, the country is spending too little or the amount required for such efforts.
However, when the results on terrorism, human rights and healthcare come together, it seems that, the government is spending more on assisting the people that are affected by natural disaster. They are even looking after the issues of women and girls all around the world (Kenny et al., 2012). They are focusing more on education and lesser on the terrorist activities. They are even promoting financial markets with a view to gain stability.
The government is continuously putting its efforts as per the survey results. They are prioritizing all the sections of healthcare that include children's health, clean water, nutrition and others. It is because of these reasons that, half of the US people mention that polio has been eliminated; however, three quarters of the people mention that it is still there in other parts of the world. The government is also spending on the providing Foreign Aid to other nations for their respective healthcare issues. However, from the survey results, majority of the foreign aid is provided for military assistance.
The government of US has spending more on protecting the health of the people, rather than spending on terrorism and economy, as per the results provided in the survey. I also do believe that, the government of US has been spending on improvising the healthcare services with a view to secure the health of the people.
The Affordable Care Act has been implemented with a view to provide quality healthcare services to the people (Wright, 2005). In addition, it will also ensure providing insurance to all those people, who have yet not taken (Oberlander, 2010). This will cover more people under the different healthcare services and hence, will ensure good health of all the people of US.
