2014). The model it promotes widely takes recognition of the wider determinants of health that focus on socio-economic, environmental and influences of politics (Ahnquist. J, Wamala. S.P & Lindstrom. M, 2012. Within the deprived and less well off communities, multiple disadvantages are reinforced by the presence of these determinants of health and thus continually diminish people’s health status (Tod. A, Norton. C, Baillie, L, Deaton, C et al, 2015). This calls for the need to actively work in partnerships with policy makers, education, health services professionals and the relevant communities facing inequalities (Soni. H, 2014). There tends to be a perception that maybe one size would fit all(Piazza. J, Charles. S, Luong. G & Almeida, D. 2015). This happens as the social model of public health never puts emphasis on individual behaviours but on action that healthcare should be downstream- treatment of illness intervention in individuals(Tod. A.M & Hirst, J, 2014). There is also a need to look upstream –preventative healthcare where the impact would be felt within the different communities and population at large that would avoid the requirement for downstream treatment (Malhotra.S & Naughton. L, 2015). If barriers are tackled in the first place that hinder access to health and care services within people and communities at
In order to first start a policy process, the problem for which a policy is to be created must be identified and the policy holding a solution to the problem. Researchers and stakeholders will investigate the problem to identify if the policy will reach the policy making agenda. Policies must be to improve society’s health and wellbeing. In the United States (U.S.) public health related issues that require a formulation of a new policy and come from local, state, or federal legislations which ruling govern the provision of health care services and regulations. In this
Patient access to affordable health care is an ongoing issue in the United States. The first portion of the policy process involves three different stages, the formulation stage, legislative stage, and the implementation stage. Three main stages exist in the process to transform a topic into a policy (Morone, J. A., Litman, T. J., & Robins, L.S., 2008). Coupled with the implementation stage is an evaluation of all the stages to determine effectiveness and gather information for use in future public health care policy making. In the formulation stage, the ideas, concepts, and information steam from this process of policy making. The
It is also important to emphasise that Health service providers such as the NHS are involved in the social policy making process, which seeks to achieve different goals, establishing targets and points of reference in the short, medium and long-term. Policies will give the outline of priorities and an overview of the role of different groups. It also builds consensus as well as inform people.
There are many reasons as to why each stage is implemented into the policies and procedures. Having guidelines and policies into place will allow everyone to understand that they must take the precautions with those who are infected with this disease. Health care providers must provider their services to those who are having issues such as HIV/AIDS on a personal level to allow them to feel comfortable to talk about the issue

In recent years our newspapers, televisions, and radios have been inundated with news stories about sexual offenders and sexual predators. Stories such as the kidnapping and murder of Polly Klass, Carlie Brucia, Amber Hagerman, and Jessica Lunsford have shocked the nation. Sex offenders and predators commit despicable acts; however, their acts seem more despicable when they are committed upon the most venerable members of our society, our children. Even with the new Jessica Lunsford legislation in Florida some citizens feel that it is not enough to keep their communities safe. Many cities are now looking at limiting the areas in which sex offenders and predators can live in hopes of protecting children. Many
In the United States, Veteran’s health care at an economical rate is a continuous debate. It is warranted that the health care should improve at a constant rate to uphold the health needs of veterans, new and old. Government has the veterans association (VA) and with all the help it has available for veterans there are still times when that care is not enough. There are so many individuals that are without health care because of one reason for another and it leaves many injured and hurt veterans without the care they need and deserve. Better access to health for veterans, men and women is important since many new problems such as PTSD have become better understood and need more focus and to be better
NATO and US troops were sent to Bosnia to solidify the fragile peace in Bosnia. Conflicts in Bosnia are largely responsible for the unstable Europe and this can alter the Security of the US as well. In addition to all these factors US planned to intervention in to the Bosnia conflict and suppress the conflicts (Carpenter, 1996). American hopes for a continental solution on Bosnia Problem proved unrealistic. The European Community-soon to become the European Union-could not reach a consensus on the appropriate course of action over Bosnia (70-97-1, 2013). With the American government's decision to become more involved in the peace process and to support the Vance-Owen plan, there was hope once again that a turning point in the Bosnian conflict had been reached (Rigby, 1994). Nations attached to the boundaries of the Bosnia are also in threat because the situation and the intervening countries can trigger war in all European nations.
The evaluation stage will help to discover any problems that have developed through the implementation process and changes in the policy by helping to solve any of the problems if necessary. Below is a picture that will show you and indicate the six processes of evaluation that will help identify the probability of the policy that
Throughout my policy paper process, I experienced a full range of emotions. If I am being completely honest, I did not I want to write a policy paper. I had been dreading for the past three years. I had always heard the horror stories about how terrible they were. However, throughout the process of writing this paper, I deduced that all of the stories to be extremely exaggerated. I unexpectedly found myself enjoying my topic as well as discovered the ease of the actual writing itself.
Marijuana legalization has been a controversial topic requiring a public policy solution in the political realm. There have been various arguments made for and against the legalization of marijuana. There are several states that have legalized marijuana use for medicinal purposes while others have let their guards down completely allowing citizens to use it not only medicinally, but recreationally as well. While the use of marijuana is still illegal at the federal level, there is much discussion by other states regarding policies to support marijuana legalization and many policy makers proactively planning for the possibility
The Government is a very important body as a stake in the health-care sector. Policies, Acts, and reforms are enacted and passed by the Government for adequate and better healthcare to meet the needs of its people. Insurance policies are one of the many ways that most States use to provide affordable and quality health care to every citizen. Although some of the laws may not have had a great impact towards the health-care, many have improved the services offered to the health-care consumer (Schmeer, 2016). Moreover, the government is also responsible for developing up policies which help in regulating the health
