Class 2 week 2 DQ-1 According to the assigned article, "Health Disparity and Structural Violence: How Fear Undermines Health Among Immigrants at Risk for Diabetes," narratives tell the story of the interconnectedness between fear and health. Thematically, the issue of fear is a dominant feature that affects how an individual approaches day-to-day living and health. Explain the relationship between fear and health identified by the researchers in the article. Do you agree that structural violence perpetuates health disparity? Structural violence is defined as systematic ways in which social structures harm or otherwise disadvantage individuals. It puts people in harm’s way and may cause injury to them. Violence of this type is structural because blame cannot be placed on just one person or a group, but rather the society and political and economic organizations. An example of this is when a young child dies of a vaccine-preventable disease or malnutrition in a poverty stricken country. Blame cannot be placed on just one person.
