There is a lot of money that the United States of America is spending on health than any other country in the world. But, despite spending so much of money on health care, the return on this health investment is very less. There is a continuous urge to stop diseases before it starts. This is a herculean task, but one that can be achieved.
By looking to stop the disease before it starts, no one wants to sideline the doctors and the hospitals. There is no doubt that the hospitals and the doctors are the only people who can serve us when disease strikes. It is only that steps need to be taken to prevent the disease from occurring and it should not happen at the expense of cure.
The investment in the health as against the curative care is not at a balance. In fact, in the US the investments on health care are strongly in favor of the cure. If there is no prevention of the disease, then spending on the cure will be more. It is important to look at preventing diseases and investing in prevention of diseases so that the amount spent on the cure will drastically reduce.
The focus should be on the health of the US population. The less the disease, the more beneficial it will be for all concerned. There is no doubt that America has the best medical care on offer in the world. It is important to give due importance and place a high value on the health. It is very important to emphasize the well-being and to take steps in making sure that everyone lives in a healthy and peaceful environment that is free from diseases. The prevention and the cure should be working hand in hand and not one above the other in order to make the country a safer and healthier one.
