Narrative with the Facts
It is time for the legislatures to be alert on the reducing commitment of USA on the global health security. Improving global healthcare by offering an affordable, transparent and efficient health is vital to the global population. Lack of essential prevention and detection systems to be used in preventing and response enhances the outbreak of the infectious diseases (Farrer et al 2015). Arguably, a serious connection should be set by the legislature, advocating for the connection between policy and budget priorities, coordination and leadership on health security. This will ensure that there’s adequate financing of health security operations and preparedness, which enhances effective response to the outbreak. The untimely outbreak of a disease could be costly and drug resistant leading to loss of more lives. Therefore I appeal to the legislative for of the government to ensure that the global health security policies are strong and secure because disease threat anywhere is a threat everywhere.
As the nurse, one is required to advocate for advancement in public health and equity in health by targeting social determinants more so on the on the behalf of the disadvantaged and the poor (Carey & Crammond, 2015). The advocacy can be achieved by considering evidence based policies that links improvement of social and health conditions. Nurses should also engage in multi-sectorial partnership and adopting security health policies in addressing concern on health needs.
Developments on health security policy are vital in improving preparedness in terms of making resources available for future outbreak response. Therefor USA should collaborate with other nations and initiatives to establish research health security agenda with an aim of elucidating the perspective of the community on actions which focuses health needs. Nursing organizations should also be brought on board in implementation of the agenda where they can help in shaping the health security policy.
