A health issue that is affecting the international health community is not a communicable disease like the medical community has seen in the past. Health issues like heart disease, stroke and injury are on the rise where communicable diseases have decreased. “Many developing countriesmust now deal with a “dual burden” of disease: they must continue to prevent and control infectious diseases, while also addressing the health threats from noncommunicable diseases and environmental health risks” (Healthy People 20/20, 2019) By being invested in developing countries health promotion this benefits the United States by improving our health. “The United States cooperates with other countries to address priority public health issues and prepare for andrespond to emerging and pandemic diseases” (Healthy People 20/20, 2019) By being there for other countries the United States is protecting the people of the states. Any outbreak of an infectious disease through either contamination or infectious disease could affect the people of the United States. This can also affect trade routes and travel.
