Question and answer
In 10-15 lines critically discuss 5 ways in which the human factor causes ill,health,accidents in south africa
Grave concerns about the health of the people of South Africa are compounded by the inadequate state of the South African health care system. [ The main factors affecting health in South Africa are the legacy of apartheid and the pressing current issues of poverty, income inequality and AIDS. These same factors affect health care — dealing with AIDS has severely diminished the funding and resources available for other diseases; income inequality is reflected in the split between private and public care; and poverty means that many South Africans have limited access to health care of any
kind, and for those able to access services the quality is low. Health care problems are exacerbated by the fact that funding for health, while overall at a reasonable level for a country with a gross domestic product per head of A$634, is skewed in favour of the private sector which mostly caters for the rich. Thus, inequalities in income are reflected in inequalities in health care and in turn in inequalities in health.South Africa suffers from a triple burden of ill health — infectious diseases, non-communicable diseases, and injury and violence (Box). Despite the denialism among some political leaders, HIV/AIDS is the main cause of premature death, accounting for 39% of years of life lost. Other infectious diseases and diseases of poverty, such as tuberculosis, diarrhoea and malnutrition, also impose a major burden. ]
