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 the most prevalent health issues that affect a wide variety of individuals. Tackling the most wide-spread problems would be the most efficient way to spend money because you’re helping more people, rather than those with a rare disease that hardly anyone has. Also, I would give funding towards the problems that cause the most deaths because it is affecting a broader range of people. Unlike recoverable illnesses, these problems cause fatalities and it is wiping out a lot of our population. By giving funding towards research groups, they can potentially find ways to improve and speed up diagnosis and discover successful treatment plans. This would significantly reduce the mortality rate. Lastly, I believe that the funding should go towards something that could affect anyone, whether they are rich or poor. It is inhumane 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 are consistent with your philosophy. Justify each priority with a short statement that summarizes credible and relevant research findings from studies or data.
