Whereas needs are basic necessities that people cannot do without like food, clothing, shelter, clean water, healthcare, security and education, wants are what one desires to make life comfortable and easy and are not easy to gratify as they are abstract and varying from person to person. It is therefore impossible for the government to come up with clear policies of gratifying peoples wants not to mention its incapability to provide the same. Taking the government’s ability to take away all we want to mean eradicating factors that make life difficult, I also refute the government’s ability on grounds that life’s impediments are equally abstract, enormous and unpredictable. In general no single government can be big enough to give and take all her peoples’ wants. It should also be taken into account that some people live without or with unstable governments.
The advantages and disadvantages of principles and values to both the service user and the service provider. Right to life Advantages for the service user The patients can make their own decisions and decide about their life. Disadvantages for the service user They don’t always make the right decision about their life and they don’t have hope, that they can find help from other people. Advantages for the service provider The advantage for the service provider is that they can’t blame their self for that they gave the patient the wrong decision. Disadvantages for the service provider The disadvantage will be that we have to tolerate the life style choices of other people, because poor choices lead to poor outcomes.
We believe that sickness is defective or diseased tissue or something affected by a destructive process with a specific cause and characteristics while the people of the east believe it is a disharmony of energy and define this as any deviation from the body at its original shape. We see symptoms as being infected with a disease that is a disagreeable phenomena that would need to be eliminated or suppressed while they think it is the body trying to heal its self by sending these messages or signs that something needs to be balanced. The thinking and perception of health is much different on opposite sides of the earth and simply comes down to the west being more physical while the east is very spiritual. The logic of what health and medicine is is not the only difference. The prevention and treatment of the east and west are very different.
V160 Policy Paper GHANA NATIONAL DRUG POLICY The policy I have chosen to examine and argue is Ghana’s National Drug Policy. The availability of pharmaceuticals has always been an issue in Ghana, and also the drugs being unsafe or ineffective, and has led to a loss of confidence in the health care system. The drugs that are not readily available to everyone in Ghana are very important in promoting health, managing diseases and/or preventing them, but they still can be harmful to the person consuming them if they are used inappropriately. The inappropriate drug use may cause a large financial burden and social problems throughout the country, but this is the reason why the state needs to ensure that functions in the national drug policy need to be clear and utilized effectively. The Ghana drug policy is implemented to provide it’s citizens with high quality drugs at low, affordable prices, to develop a professional standard in the country, to help enact drug regulations, and to promote the logical use of drugs.
In the instance of universal health care, the plan covers everyone, mostly for people who have a hard time finding health care. Second advantage, is that “the entire population spreads around the cost of the health care so everyone can at least get the basic care that they need.” A third major advantage is that citizens can get free treatments for basic conditions without concerns for cost. The cons of this health care are that it often results in lengthy waiting time for patients, and therefore, not every patient will receive the services needed. Additional, patients with higher incomes may be weary of their money being spent on others health care. A third con is the inedible fact that some people may attempt to abuse the system.
United Nations and World Health Organization are structuring wide range programme to combat the spread of gender based health inequality globally. Various strategies to promote health among the disadvantaged population have been implemented. However health inequality could not be abolished totally due to certain barriers. To understand what is health inequality takes health researchers into the moral and political dimension. It is a widely regarded normative concept, health inequalities are defined as health disadvantages which are considered to be unfair and unjust (Vallgarda, 2006).
They won’t be able to share their problems with their GP because the GP doesn’t consider the individual as important. The individual could feel as though everyone thinks that way about them. This could lead to the person becoming very lonely and isolated. The individual could also get depressed and begin to hate who they are. Disempowerment: Make a person or group less powerful or confident Disempowerment: In a Care Home The managers and members of staff are more powerful than the service users because they have more authority, therefore they can put that into action.
This assignment will focus on inequalities and inequities in service provision experienced by asylum seekers.Critical and evidence-based suggestions about how access to services for this population group will be addressed. Inequalities in health can be described as the uneven distribution of health and well-being amongst the population due to socio-economic factors such as income and environment (Evans, 2007). Equality is concerned with universality meaning everybody should be treated the same and distinctions should not be made between individuals (Almond, 2002). Inequities in health are the perceived unfair distribution of resources and availability of health services according to need (Baggot, 2000).According to Almond (2002) equity means that services should be based on actual need and this could mean reducing services for one group to focus on another. Therefore, equity, or access to services, needs to be considered when discussing inequalities in health as one can affect the other.
Rachel goes on to challenge this argument by saying that people don’t want to what they feel obligated to do. To be unselfish, Rachels says, depends on what it is that someone wants. For example, if someone wants something for someone else, and then in turn it gives them pleasure, that act is not selfish. Another way Rachels explains how someone is unselfish is when someone derives satisfaction from attainting their goals. However, one must want to accomplish their goal before actually receiving satisfaction from it.
In order to improve the nation’s health and end the disproportion in health care to vulnerable populations, the social determinants of health must be addressed foremost in order to achieve an understanding of the issues that are affecting so many Americans and what must be done in the fight toward equality in the U.S. health care delivery system. All of the social factors are a part of a cycle, one affecting the other. Elements of each social factor influence the others in a specific way. These social factors mainly affect the underserved populations of racial and ethnic minorities, women and children, rural residents, the uninsured, homeless peoples, mental health patients, patients with chronic illness or disabilities, and HIV/AIDs patients. In the U.S., social factors are associated with lower overall health care usage and access (Shi & Singh, 2010).
