One way to improve overall health in my country is to strengthen health system. Without an efficient and equitable health systems, countries will not be able to upgrade disease prevention and control programs required to meet the specific health goals ( Millennium Development Goals, 2005). Health system provides actions, and activities to improve or maintain health.
According to UN Sustainable development Goals this means that citizens must have access to quality essential healthcare services and access to safe, effective and affordable medicine and vaccines. The quality of a health care does not mean failure of professional, it is more a result of gaps in knowledge that needs to be closed, inappropriate application of the technology that is available and the inability of an organization to change for better outcomes ( Murray&Frenk, 2000).
It increases health literacy, avoids risky health behaviors, take preventive healthcare measures and demands better quality from health services.By educating the citizen they acquire skills and are more aware on how to protect and take care of them selves from different diseases or other illnesses throat their lifetime.
The second way is by investing in education. Hahn & Truman (2015) tells us that basic educational expertise and skills, including fundamental knowledge, reasoning ability, emotional self-regulation, and interactional abilities, are critical components of healthAccording to Williamson (2014) citizen participation is central to the promotion of sustainable health and health care.
Develop health strategies that will react to the diverse and evolving needs of a country. The government and the concerning stakeholders need to come with cost effective strategies that will tackle the diseases and condition that have the biggest part in the burden of disease (Peabody, 2006). It is important that the country stay up do date about the different diseases and stay on top of the new advancement in medicine, technology, machines and other necessities that are needed to keep up the health quality.
