As reported, there have been a few recommendations from health experts to Governments on allocating budgets to educate the public to live a healthy lifestyle which can prevent people from falling ill. I totally agree with them, as it is a cost-effective way to handle public health problem confronted by most of the governments in the world.
One of the most important functions of governments is to maintain the public health at a relatively high level. However, the traditional pattern adopted by governments is spending a large amount of money on providing treatment, which leads to a vicious circle: the more money they invested, the worse situation it turned to be. Let's consider smoking control programs in China. According to statistics, there are about 1.2 million of people died of lung cancer because of smoking or second-handed smoking. Merely in 2000, the cost of smoking in China has reached nearly 5 billion RMB varied from treatment expenditure and the production losses. In fact, if the government had switched its policy by providing more education programs about living a healthy life style, asking the cigarette manufactures to tag warning marks on the packaging of cigarette, forbidding smoking in public, penalizing the retailers who sell cigarette to the people under 18. Doing that, the amount of patients suffered from lung cancer would reduce significantly.
Moreover, funding on disease prevention projects and educating the public with healthy life style would contribute to the social stability. Suffering from disease is not only money-consuming but also miserable and painful. It isn’t unusual to see people commit crimes because of money shortage which stems from highly cost of disease treatments. If Governments take action before bad situation happens, for example, raising residents’ health awareness and proving an unpolluted environment, it will prevent many people from suffering disease so as to curb the proliferation of crime.
