1. Write a brief paragraph that outlines your overarching philosophy concerning
global health problems and solutions. What do you think is the best approach to spending global health funding?I believe there is a middle ground for everything, but when it comes to global health, my philosophy is not to focus on what causes more deaths, but is preventable, and what seems easier to fix given the resources we have. If we were given money to spend on global health funding, it would be more efficient to spend in something that gives more of an outcome rather than on something that we don’t know will be fixed or not. Therefore, if it’s preventable and we know what we should implement to fix it, why not do that? Also, if we have the capability for resolution to something given an amount of resources, we should use it to our best proficiency to solve it.2. Identify 7-10 global health priorities that you consider to be important and are consistent with your philosophy. Justify each priority with a short statement that summarizes research findings from studies or data.Priority: Lessening the cases and controlling obesity and overweightStatement: Being the second leading cause of preventable death but nearly doublingsince 1980, obesity can be reduced through supportive environments, making healthier choices in foods, regular physical activity (WHO, 2013).
