WHY IS MEDICAL CARE IMPORTANT TOME?My right is the right to medical careIt is important to me because if you have medical care it can basically save your life!
KYTHE FOUNDATION Kythe is a foundation that helps children who have different diseases such as; leukemia, cancer ect. In Kythe they also give them the right to play, and education They help the kids to over come their fears of the hospital and teach them that the hospital is a safe place.
VACCINES Babies and children need to be vaccinated and immunized regularly to prevent diseases and infections like measles and polio-unfortunately in developing countries most people can’t afford to get vaccinated. Sadly over three million babies die each year from vaccine preventable diseases More than 34 million children are NOT immunized to prevent diseases(world watch/UNICEF)
DIFFERENT DISEASES There are so many different diseases that can kill so many people like: Measles – is a very contagious disease caused by a virus Leukemia – is a type of cancer in the blood or bones Poliomyelitis- affects nerves and can lead to paralysis Cancer-is an uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells in the body Malnutrition-is when a baby doesn’t have enough of the right food for he/she to eat so their body becomes really skinny but their belly becomes big. Doctors and scientists are trying to find a cure for all of these diseases and we hope they can!!!(UNICEF, World Watch)
THE AMOUNT OF PEOPLE WHO DONOT HAVE MEDICAL CARE In America over 54 million people don’t have good health care!- and any hospital in America and many other countries will not give the treatment to the people unless they have the money to pay for it. In the Ninth Ward there is a hospital with over 1,300 patient files and about 95% of them don’t have the money to cover the cost… 11 million children under the age of five die because of Malnutrition Measles kill 10,000 Angolan children each year More than one billion people all around the world do NOT have access to medical care…(UNICEF, A life like mine)
The right to medical care is VERY important and EVERYONE deserves it no matter how wealthy they are!!!
