Statement 1

2. Think of World Health and the Allocation of Health Care. How should Health Care be allocated? The consideration of Health Care allocation should be based on a number of elements such as people’s needs, supply and demand, available resources, geographic locations and communities. There is also the consideration of what risks needs to be reduced which should be based on the importance of the population factors and who faces them and how to best reduce those risks. (Daniels, 2016) Do all human beings have a claim and right to proper Health Care? I think all humans should have a claim and right to proper Health Care if they need it which includes hospitals, clinics, medicines, and doctor services. Health care should be affordable, inclusive and physically accessible as much as possible for everyone where and when needed. As the reading Public Health of Ethics states “All things considered, having public health regulation is better than not having it. Public health decisions made on the basis of overall statistics and demographic trends are ultimately better for each one of us, even if particular interventions may not directly benefit some of us.” However, I am not sure how this would be paid for or made affordable for everyone. How should we pay for Health Care systems? I think devising a way to pay for an holistic Health Care System may be a struggle but may be able to be achievable through government regulated Health Care which tax payers would pay a special government tax to contribute to the cost and the government would then be able regulate and negotiate drug prices and medical services which would eliminate the need for the large private health insurance administration. (Goodman, 2014) How should Health conditions that threaten large segments of the World’s populations be handled? They should be reviewed and assessed by the responsible government entities individually and then collectively reviewed and prioritized globally on how to best be addressed and when.
