Many argued that avoiding a preventable illness is the duty of each individual or their family. But is that just enough to do? I cannot agree with
and I think the one that should to do is the governments. Because the governments have an obligation, duty, and have control about the best way how to avoid them. Avoiding preventable ill
is one of the concerns of Public
itself is “the science and art of preventing disease, prolonging life and promoting
through the organized efforts and informed choices of society, organizations, public and private, communities and individuals” (Winslow, 1920). I believe that the
is the main actor to avoid preventable illness.
reason why is because the authority has regulations on human rights especially in

policy. The United Nations` World
Organization (WHO) defines
policy refers to choices, strategy, and activities that are embraced to achieve specific

governments just to take action encourages healthy living. Culture shock will be happening, people are hard to follow instruction from
because it_s not part of the habit. The areas of public
responsibility include guaranteeing a satisfactory
infrastructure, advancing healthy communities and healthy behaviours, protecting against environmental
At the end, I will conclude that avoiding preventable illness, it_s
duty, not for individuals or their family. Governments actually have full responsibility and concern about the preventable ill
and healthy life.
