Public Health Threats in 2022
Healthcare Access and Outcome Disparities
Several people in the United States and all over the world, especially those from marginalized people, continue to be denied access to good health care for a number of reasons. The United States cites the greater cost of health care, an absence of (or inadequate) medical insurance, a shortage of services, and a sudden loss of culturally appropriate care. This issue is made worse by the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP).
According to a latest Cigna National Study, social isolation and loneliness are now a major cause for concern. Roughly half of survey participants described experiencing lonely at times or all of the time, and roughly 40% reported that their connections are not as important as they would like them to be.
Trauma and Violence
Since 2012 deadly shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut, there have been over 2,312 mass killings in the United States. Such mass shootings include a number of violent crimes that already have impacted human safety, including murder, sexual or physical assault, and child molestation.
