The era of “care”
It is the job of the government to take a keen interest in the health and care of their citizens. Organizing health care is very important for the sake of a better country.
The European Union serves, more or less, as an example of what’s meant by taking a keen interest in the health and care of citizens. The several policies for the public regarding health should be appreciated.
The EU health policy:
The European health policy includes different goals which include:
• Helping its government in achieving their objectives.
• Prevention and safety precautions by keeping the public aware of health issues and promoting a healthy lifestyle.
• Equality. This means that the EU policy is working to provide equal medications for everyone regardless of their income, gender, and religion.
• Talking about different health issues with other major countries.
• Keeping the elderly healthy and fit.
• The EU policies of health also encourage and supports new technologies meant for the health system. In this way, newer medications are being introduced.
• The EU policy also includes the EU laws and standards for the quality of medication and health services. For example, the machines and medicines which are being provided to the hospitals should be of reliable standards.
• Patients safety first. It is a fundamental rule of the EU policy to provide first aid to their patients without wasting time in making bills.
• Discussing the health issues, disease management and the risk factors for particular diseases.
• The EU health policy also introduces EU health programs for the funding of health projects.
Diseases and its precautions:
The European Union is also taking significant steps in preventing their patients from different diseases by labeling the food items and their nutritional qualities. In this way, the consumer always knows that what he or she is eating.
The European Union also holds the screening programs for the awareness of breast, cervical and colorectal cancer. EU also promotes healthy diet and exercise in their policies to prevent the public from major diseases. Advertising against different drug addictions is another way of making people aware of the various health issues related to smoking, tobacco and other chemicals.
The various vaccination centers for children health are also playing their role in improving overall health and safety of children.
The European treatment and research centers always take a keen interest in the medications of various major diseases. The EU also helps their patients in treatment when needed by offering related policies. For example, if the patient needs a special treatment which is available across the border then EU gives special permission for such a purpose.
