Protecting the Global Commons: an Evaluation of Global Fish Stock Health and Management

...Protecting The Global Commons: An evaluation of global fish stock health and management. The global commons share many primary resources that deserve to be managed and maintained effectively. The global fish stocks are included in these. Overexploitation of this delicate resource can lead to not only a depletion and extinction of this precious fish resource, but also a depletion of jobs, economic opportunities and revenue. Many countries rely heavily on aqua fisheries and aqua tourism industries as a great source of social and economic growth. Factors such as bycatch casualties, pollution, illegal fishing, unsustainable fishing and unsustainable management have a large part in the rapid depletion of global fish stocks. International policies are in place to effectively sustain and replenish fish stocks in particular The United Nations Convention of the Law of the Sea and The 1995 United Nations Fish Stocks Agreement. The purpose of this paper is to critically access the government and academic literature in respect to the fish stocks of the world. This paper also aims to critically investigate the international policies and treaties associated with the Ministry Of Fisheries; that govern the regulations of sustainable fishing and fish stock management. Accordingly, this paper will be divided into four quantitive sections: the first section will provide reference and conduct a detailed review of the literature on overexploitation and depletion of fish stocks in the global......

...COURSE: NURS 411 GLOBAL HEALTH CARE: FRANCE MAGDALENA PACANSKA 06/16/2013 Abstract The French health care system combines universal coverage with a public-private mix of hospital and ambulatory care and a higher volume of service provision than in the United States. Although the system is far from perfect, its indicators of health status and consumer satisfaction are high; its expenditures, as a share of gross domestic product, are far lower than in the United States; and patients have an extraordinary degree of choice among providers. The lessons for the United States include the importance of government’s role in providing a statutory framework for universal health insurance; recognition that piecemeal reform can broaden a partial program like Medicare to cover, eventually, the entire population; and understanding that universal coverage can be achieved without excluding private insurers from the supplementary insurance market. France has the largest land area in Western Europe, housing 65.8 million people as of January 2011. This ranked France as the 21rd most populous country in the world; with 85 % of white people, 10 % of North African and 3.5 % of black people. The estimated birth rate as of 2000 was 12.27 births for every 1,000of the population and infant mortality is 4.51 deaths per 1,000, which is relatively lower than other developed countries. Life expectancy is one of the highest among developed countries, estimated at 74.85 years for......

Global Perspective on Health Policy

...Health Care Reform: the Macro Perspective Andrew Ojo HCS/550 December 16, 2013 Connie Melton Health Care Reform, the Macro Perspective Often a time individuals living in America wonders how the health care system could change for the better. One problem that has constantly troubled the minds of consumers have been the subject of health care cost and restrictions invoked by health care coverage providers. At the moment, most of the American people need quality health care services resulting mainly from lack of health care coverage. Here in the United States health care policy and health care service has become controversial domestic issue. Most Americans have this believe that there is a strain on their budgets resulting from how much they have to pay for health care, even employers are complaining that they pay too much as share of cost for employees (Shader, 2013). According to William (2009), the U. S spend a huge portion of its gross national product mainly on health care as compared to other countries. U.S Chamber of Commerce (2013), “The United States spends $2.7 trillion a year on healthcare, and in 2011, the government was on the hook for $38.6 trillion in unfunded liabilities for Medicare”. At present, the United States has relatively poor outcomes in the state health for her citizens to show for the expenditures. In a bid, to find a lasting solution to this concerns, the legislative arms in conjunction with government heads enacted a series of laws in recent...

Ethical Dilemmas in Global Health Care

...Ethical Dilemmas in Global Health Care Kanjirathingal, Elsy Grand Canyon University NRS-437V Ethical Decision Making in HC (O102) 18-December-2010 Ethical dilemmas are becoming very common in today’s healthcare and often it extends beyond the boundaries of age, race, gender and ethnicity. Dilemma is not easily solved or it becomes more evident when no acceptable alternatives are found. Most of the times dilemma produces very painful or distressful situations to the people who are involved. Issues that we see in our community or we come across in our daily career are often magnified in the global community. The article “The dilemma of D-generation” from the Sunday mail describes the ethical dilemma of issues of identity of the growing children who are born from anonymous donors. Even though these children have fantastic relationship with their parents the question of identity, heritage and history remains as a tragedy. However, as nurses we should recognize the ethical issues and able to find the resolution that arises from these ethical dilemmas (Hansen, 2010). Event and Ethical Implications The dilemma of D-generation in the Sunday mail describes about the different identity issues of the children who are born from unknown fathers. The method of in vitro fertilization (IVF) became a blessing of many families who have weakened or no reproductive strength. The mystery of creating a new life in a women’s womb become......

Environmental and Global Health

...Environmental and Global Health Issues Laralee Shaffmaster Western Governor’s University Environmental and Global Health Issues This paper on environmental and global health issues in community health nursing will discuss and analyze the communicable disease measles. It will present epidemiological data, causes, manifestations and the route of transmission for measles. A graphic representation of the measles outbreak will be presented to discuss the international pattern and movement of the disease. A discussion of how the measles outbreak could affect the community will also be presented. Next, this paper will present the appropriate protocol that a community health nurse will follow to report a SARS outbreak in the community. The last subject this paper will discuss is how a community health nurse modifies their care of clients with respiratory diseases during a time when the air quality index is poor. A. Measles Rubeola or measles is a respiratory disease. Measles is a virus that normally grows in the throat cells that line the back of the throat and lungs. Once infected, measles causes runny nose, fever, cough and a head to toe rash that occurs 14 days after exposure (CDC, 2013). A1. Outbreak In the year 2000 measles became eliminated in the United States. Elimination means the disease is no longer native to the U.S. and cases are not reported for a twelve month period in endemic proportions. Outbreaks occur when people travel to countries where the......

Environmental & Global Health Issues

...Environmental & Global Health Issues Barbara Salinas Community Health Practice SZT1 Western Governors University August 29, 2014 Environmental & Global Health Issues SARS The first pandemic of the 21st century began in February of 2003. The people of Asia were the first to be infected but the disease quickly spread world-wide. By the end of this pandemic over 8,000 people had become ill and 774 had died. The illness associated with this pandemic is known as Severe Acute Reparatory Syndrome, or SARS. The infectious agent associated with SARS is a virus that appears to have crown-like spikes on its surface. This virus is known as the coronavirus. This virus has four sub-groups and was commonly known to infect animals. In the 1960’s there were six strains of the coronavirus that were discovered to have the ability to infect humans. The particular strain of this virus responsible for SARS was the SARS-CoV. This particular strain of the virus has the ability to infect humans and animals (CDC, 2012). SARS is a contagious virus that is spread through droplets from person to person. This occurs as the infected person coughs or sneezes on or near a non-infected person. The droplets travel through the air as they land on the non-infected person the virus begins to invade their body. Shortly after the SARS-CoV virus has invaded and multiplied in the human body the individual may begin to experience upper respiratory symptoms such as high fever,......

Global Health in India

...Global Health: India Healthcare offers many opportunities and challenges for several countries. The purpose of this paper is to summarize India’s health care structure, health care policy, access to care issues, cost related to how much is spent, where the money comes from, and how it is spent, the role of nursing, and strengths and weaknesses of the system. In India, there has been a promising change over the last decade as the government has introduced many structural reforms and a private sector that has shown unprecedented growth. Despite these advances, the shifting demographics, socio-economic status, and changes in disease patterns is making a challenging journey more difficult (Binnendijk, Koren, & Dror, 2012). Three main challenges of India’s health care can be broadly defined as access, capacity to pay, and quality care. Healthcare challenges will become progressively more difficult over time as India is expected to be the most populated country in the world by 2028 (Haub, Gribble, & Jacobsen, 2011). India’s health care structure includes public and private hospitals, voluntary health agencies, national health programs, as well as traditional Ayurvedic medicine (Shrivastava, Shrivastava, & Ramasamy, 2013). The majority of health care centers are government owned and regulated. These urban centers have private hospitals that provide excellent care. The fragmented health care delivery means lots of small hospitals and clinics scattered over enormous geographical......

Human Health and Global Environmental Change

...HUMAN HEALTH AND GLOBAL ENVIRONMENTAL CHANGE The Global Warming is not occurring evenly. The effect is high in the poles especially the Arctic. We know the Globe is warming from thermometers placed at various points in the Earth. This gives data from about 1830’s to current day. The oldest thermometer employed to find the atmospheric temperature was from Germany. But the disadvantage is we can go back only 200 years or so. To find the facet of climate before those periods, we use ICE. Ice cores from Antarctica and Greenland are drilled and studied. As snow falls on Earth, which is mostly Ocean, it sinks in due to higher density and so the deeper we drill the Ice cores from, the older the temperature records we will end up analyzing. How do we do this study? Water is made of Hydrogen and Oxygen. There are types of Oxygen, one that weighs 16 and one that weighs 18. These are Atomic weights. This makes the molecules’ weight different. Water that is heavier condenses more readily and water that is lighter evaporates more readily. So near Equator, where the temperature is high the lighter oxygen evaporates more readily as we move to the poles the concentration of Heavier oxygen decreases compared to the concentration of Lighter Oxygen by 5%, since the temperature is lower at the poles and the light water evaporation is reduced. So when you take the ice core from various depths and analysis the ratio of Heavy water to Light water we can figure out the temperature......

Global Warming and Human Health

...The question of whether global warming will have a negative impact on human health is a serious issue that will affect every living thing on the planet earth. Some believe that global warming is a serious issue that must be addressed now or the planet will have dire consequences. On the other hand, Critics believe that global warming is a normality of the earth’s atmosphere. This paper will answer the questions: who, what, why, when, and how global warming will or will not have a negative impact on human health. The research must start by describing global warming and why some scientist and researchers believe that it will have a negative impact on human health. In direct quotation of Bloice and Hallinan, 2005: The temperature of the earth’s atmosphere is influenced by the balance between the high energy ultraviolet radiation absorbed from the sun and the amount of heat radiated back into the atmosphere. Carbon dioxide, water, methane, and other “greenhouse gases” are the key elements that regulate the earth’s temperature. Greenhouse gases are similar to the glass in a greenhouse- they allow light to enter and warm the interior but trap radiation, which heats the inside. Greenhouse gases in the atmosphere cause a buildup of heat that raises the temperature on the earth’s surface, a process called the greenhouse effect. Why do people believe that global warming will have a negative impact on human health? 1) Disease 2) Heat related deaths 3) Increases......

Hepatitis B: a Global Health Crisis

...Hepatitis B: A Global Health Crisis Gina Duron Grand Canyon University: NRS 427V November 15, 2015 Hepatitis B: A Global Health Crisis Approximately one-third of the world’s population have been infected with the hepatitis b virus (HBV) and 240 million people are infected with chronic hepatitis b infection worldwide. This communicable disease is a potentially life threatening liver infection. It has become a global health problem that affects all areas of the world. Many organizations, health care providers, and governments around the world are working together to address the health concerns that affect different parts of the world. By understanding the health determinants that affect hepatitis b and researching the epidemiologic triangle of hepatitis b, policies and plans can be developed to guide the community health nurse in her role in reducing the morbidity and mortality of this communicable disease. What is Hepatitis B? Hepatitis b is a viral infection that can manifest as acute or chronic. Approximately ninety percent of adults with a normal immune status can recover completely from a newly acquired hepatitis b infection. Infants, young children, immunocompromised persons infected with hepatitis b are more at risk for developing the chronic form of disease which can lead to life threatening liver disease and liver cancer. Symptoms of HBV include jaundice of skin and sclera, abdominal pain, fever, joint pain, weakness and nausea and vomiting. This......

The Global Health Threat of Climate Change

...Climate change is the biggest global health threat of the 21st century. Effects of climate change on health will affect most populations in the next decades and put the lives and wellbeing of billions of people at increased risk. During this century, earth's average surface temperature rises are likely to exceed the safe threshold of 2°C above preindustrial average temperature. Rises will be greater at higher latitudes, with medium-risk scenarios predicting 2-3°C rises by 2090 and 4-5°C rises in northern Canada, Greenland, and Siberia. With this current situation, the whole of U.K. population is at risk considering the changing patterns of disease, water and food insecurity, vulnerable shelter and human settlements, extreme climatic events, and population growth and migration. Although vector-borne diseases will expand their reach and death tolls, especially among elderly people, will increase because of heat waves, the indirect effects of climate change on water, food security, and extreme climatic events are likely to have the biggest effect on global health (Prof A. Costello FRCPCH, S Ball BSc, C Patterson LLB). Aside from the bigger picture of climate change we still need to consider the leading global risk for mortality, Hypertension is responsible for 12.8% (7.5 million) of total deaths worldwide, according to a new report issued by the WHO. The report also identified hypertension as responsible for 3.8% of years of life lost due to premature death plus years of......

Key words: Global population, Health, Children. Background Human beings are the only species whose offspring are born in a vulnerable state. Children are not able to walk, talk, feed or defend themselves. They are completely dependent on others for many years until they start learning to be independent and are able to defend themselves. Children are also completely governed by the culture, economy and social status of adults from the moment they are born. Children are considered the poorest human beings because they are unable to or it is difficult for them to thrive on their own. Global population- children profile their health issues Around the world children are facing different health issues. Beginning from the moment they are conceived. Children are exposed to different preventable and infectious illnesses and conditions beginning when they are in the womb. Some children are not fortunate enough to survive labor because of their mothers’ compromised health. If children are privileged to survive birth, they do not have access to basic things such as food or clean water. Some children around the world starve to death. Many children around the world do not have access to basic prevented health care such as medicine and vaccines,......

Environmental Issues on Global Health

...Environmental Issues on Global Health Seven Environmental Issues Complete the following chart by identifying seven environmental issues that affect global health. In the second column, describe in complete sentences how the issue affects global health. Environmental issue How does the issue affect global health? Overpopulation The Earth’s natural resources are already being consumed at an unsustainable rate. Many of these resources are required to support world health and human life (Donnatelle, 2010). Human population is expected to increase dramatically over the next decade. This, alone, is the greatest threat to life on our planet. Air pollution Air pollution affects everything from agriculture and ecosystems to human health, on a global scale. The five major air pollutants are ground-level ozone, particulate matter, carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide, and nitrogen dioxide (Donnatelle, 2010). A majority of these pollutants are the result of human action. One example being coal power plants. These plants release greenhouse gas emissions and particle air pollution. The burning of the coal creates pollutant byproducts. Other forms of industrial pollution, exhaust fumes, burning wood, and several forms of indoor air pollutants result in air contamination. The combination of various air contaminates can be extremely toxic. The pollutants irritate the lungs and may even cause respiratory diseases and cancer in humans (Donnatelle, 2010). Ozone Layer Depletion /......
