Name your document 1_LastName_FirstName and submit it to the Assignment 1 link.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?Personally, I believe the best approach to spending global health funding is to address themost prevalent health issues that affect a wide variety of individuals. Tackling the mostwide-spread problems would be the most efficient way to spend money because you’rehelping more people, rather than those with a rare disease that hardly anyone has. Also, Iwould give funding towards the problems that cause the most deaths because it is affectinga broader range of people. Unlike recoverable illnesses, these problems cause fatalities andit is wiping out a lot of our population. By giving funding towards research groups, they canpotentially find ways to improve and speed up diagnosis and discover successful treatmentplans. This would significantly reduce the mortality rate. Lastly, I believe that the fundingshould go towards something that could affect anyone, whether they are rich or poor. It isinhumane to only help a certain class of individuals—everyone should be treated as equals. 2. Identify at least five (5) global health priorities that you consider to be important and areconsistent with your philosophy. Justify each priority with a short statement thatsummarizes credible and relevant research findings from studies or data.
