Communication, like in a relationship, it is important that countries talk about and seek help with any diseases they may be encountering. The key is that once the world is made aware of a problem (and quickly) it is much easier to come to a solution to said problems. Immunization, if it is a disease that is already known, the process of immunization of the populace is paramount to slowing down the spread and effectiveness of the disease. Research, at the heart of containing the spread of the disease, there is usually a team of highly qualified and determined individuals, we must ensure that these teams receive the funding they required to keep developing drugs to counter the diseases they find. In poor countries where medical facilities may not have the required treatments for diseases depend on international aid, especially with medical supplies. The price of drugs for many developing countries is an incredible barrier, with pharmaceutical companies holding patents for the most basic of cures and charging obscene amounts of money for them, we must find a way to allow the fabrication of cures at a much lower price point so that poor countries may gain access to those cures.

Instead of going to the copious fast food establishments spread across the valley, I would rather shop for my family at a much healthier store such as Fresh n Easy or a different farmers market. Due to the fact that the food you will buy there is all natural and it is not processed, it is a healthier plan to eat foods from there than McDonalds. I would much rather buy watermelons or oranges for my family than a big mac for each one of…

    He remarks that despite the exorbitant amount spent on health care, Americans do not receive proportionally better health outcomes. Moreover, American health insurance spending is unjustly distributed in that a large part of the population goes without any coverage at all. He identifies three key underlying features of this inconsistency: skewed distributions of wealth, patient’s lack of full medical knowledge, and discrimination by insurance companies of unhealthy individuals. If these unjust barriers were not present, Dworkin argues that most rational people would indeed pursue securing health care. Thus it follows then, that in the real world it must be injustice preventing them from doing…

    That is that people of wealth already benefit from being first on the list to receive an organ. This has to do with the distribution centers, or the non-profit United Network for Organ Sharing centers who set their own criteria as to distribute organs to those who can pay (Victory, 2006). Victory (2006) makes light that uninsured patients were often denied the lifesaving treatment of organ transplant, because of the tremendous financial strain on the hospitals including pre and post-surgery (para. 4).
