"Prevention is better than cure." Out of a country's health budget, a large proportion should be diverted from treatment to spending on health education and preventative measures. To what extent do you agree or disagree with this statement?
There has long been a debate over if is better and most important prevention or cure to the people and health politics. The people could have better life style with good health and could suffer less with a very well education in preventative measure.
Around the world the people are really grateful with the cure for theirs pains and diseases. The advances in medical science are very important in the increase of quality of life of the persons, decreasing the suffering in who have chronic diseases and curing sickness that were fatal in the past.
However, some illness could be avoided with a good information and education about changes in the life style and feeding. In this way, prevent diseases is better for the people, demeaning a lot of suffer and discomforts. If the people can prevent theirs possible illness, they could live most happy and do not need spend money in the curer process.
Furthermore, the governments spend a lot of money in the cure process of the people and could be less expensive invest this money in a good educational system seeking each one prevent some illness. In this way, the government could spend most money in others important development area, and the people could have better health and in consequences greatest life style.
In conclusion, the cure for sickness is a great advantage for all persons in the world; but still, the people could be a better life, if they can prevent some illness. On the other hand, for the governments are cheaper invest most money in an educational politics of sickness prevention, than continuing support the people in preventable diseases.
