A recent report states: ‘Homelessness in the UK is a crisis that is destroying the lives of people, especially young people.’ Write an article for your school or college newspaper persuading young people to support charities which help the homeless. There are over 2,300 people who sleep rough on England’s streets on any given night. There are charities which help the homeless, such as Crisis, St Mungo’s and Sleep Link. These charities are funded people and organisations nationwide, such as Help The Homeless. They help some of the UK's most disadvantaged people.
HIV/AIDS is one of the biggest and baffling diseases our world has to deal with. IV drug users are at an especially high risk for these diseases through the act of sharing needles with other addicts who may be afflicted with the disease. Research shows that NEPs actually reduce the occurrence of HIV among drug-users. The first NEP was opened in New York City in early 1992. (Jarlais, Doc C Des, et al).
Many of these homeless individuals may have had a pre existing substance abuse problem and became homeless because family members were no longer willing to enable self-destructive behavior. In a case like this, the individual essentially chooses to be homeless instead of obtaining assistance for his or her substance abuse issues. Another example of using critical thinking to understand the cause of an issue can be made by trying to understand mental illness among the homeless population. An inference can be made that mentally ill individuals become homeless as a result of his or her inability to provide a stable environment for his or herself. This is based on the assumption that mentally ill individuals
Once the individual reaches eighteen, they are considered an adult and are almost immediately discharged from their family. Having no way to support themselves financially, they become homeless within the year. California, Texas, and Florida have the highest numbers of “discharged” homeless foster children.

Other difficulties include: personal security, quiet, and privacy, especially for
Doctors for example, would take preventative measures to help the individual that he/she is dealing with. If the patient isn’t getting better then it looks bad on the doctor as he isn’t doing everything he can to ensure the patient is getting better. An example of this would be for a patient to stop smoking. If a patient is a heavy smoker and he has lung problems, then the doctor could introduce him to the smoking programme that he has enabled and then it is in the patient’s hands whether or not he goes. Then the doctor has done everything he can to try to get the patient to stop smoking.
In order to reduce this problem we can give the homeless and the unfortunate a sanitary place to stay. We already have lots of people who die from diseases and thus we don’t need to lose more people because of our government lack of care for the homeless. Every day there’s a crime committed against homeless people. Did you that Sixty-eight percent out of 137 people have been a victim of a violent attack since they've became homeless.

You can see many homeless people everywhere in America. The most recently available national data on homelessness states: “There are 633,782 people were experiencing homelessness in January 2012” (The State of Homelessness in America 2013). It means about 20 homeless people per 10,000 people in general population. A majority of persons identified as homeless were staying in emergency shelters or transitional housing, but 38% were unsheltered. According surveys, I think high unemployment rate and low employment rate, mental illness and domestic violence can cause people becoming homeless in America.
Being out of home can have many implications to a persons health. As they are vulnerable and often may not have the resources to provide food or shelter for themselves they are leaving themselves open to a lot of preventable infections and diseases, be it a common flu or HIV.

Crisis believe that “Homeless people die younger. The average age of death of those recorded as homeless on corners varies between 42 and 53 years.” (Crisis,
