“Health is Wealth” they say. Yet, many people still disregard the fact that each person should take care of his own self. Consider too the fact that there are some governments who overlooks their health care responsibilities to the public they promised to take care of during their campaigns. (Andereck, Modest Proposal…)
This responsibility is a very important part in keeping the people capable of working for and with the state. “Healthy people makes a progressive country”, claims a writer as he observes the economic downfall of his poor country due to the lack of capability of the government to provide necessary medication for its people.
In the American society though, there are several national programs which are designed to support the American health care. Among the said programs are the American Health Insurance Program, and the National Health insurance Program.
These two government arrangements for the American population have been proven effective for the years of its existence. For a fact, the beneficiaries of these programs express their gratitude to the government because of the big help it gives them. Who are the beneficiaries?
Most likely, these people are the ones who are employees of a certain company affiliated with the program. Others may comprise of ordinary citizens who are given special provisions by the government to receive special medical treatments at that. Today, these programs give provisions to over two million population of the American Society. But are this all the provisions the government could give?
The Constant Responsibility of the Government
to Care for the People’s Health
More than anybody else, the people belonging to the remote areas are the ones highly in need of the service of the government for health care programs (The Daily Reflector, ECU Notes…). The places where medical care may not be that easy to locate have the most possible cases of medication needing the government’s assistance.
As mentioned earlier, health is for everyone. Even for those who cannot work or for those who are unemployed. After all, they are still part of the community and they are still part of the government’s responsibility as well. Indeed, further health programs especially the expansion of the benefits provided by the National Health Insurance Program should be well given attention to.
The backbone of any country is its people. And taking care of a country’s strongest force may not be that easy. But with continuous effort and unfailing cooperation from every sector of the society shall make it easier for the government to perform its duty to its people on health in the best possible way.
Ethical Issues of the Process and How they are Responded to
Constant assessment of the process, thus allowing the entire government to handle the said responsibility with much efficiency makes the problem of healthcare much easier to handle and to take care of.
Current government electoral in the United States usually handle the said issues thus presenting them upon their speeches about their political propagandas and programs which they claim are all for the sake of the society that they are aiming to serve as they take the positions that they are running for.
Through the care that the government places on the major procedure of how the individuals of the society actually receive the health services that they are particularly due, they are then able to establish the ethical standards of the country and its government in taking fine care of the people’s healthcare needs.
