Climate Change

Climate change started years ago and it is still happening now. There were many actions taken by the World Health Organization and United Nations in creating a sustainable solutions. 

Recently, the nations of the world gathered in Paris to address the issue about climate change. They emphasized that the effects were affecting our health.

We are no spared from the effects of Climate change. It is a long standing problem that we must give attention.

Death toll due to environmental causes is about 23% of the global population. Most of the deaths came from Southeast Asian Region followed by Western Pacific Region and African Region. These areas have more developing countries than developed ones which only shows that the effects of climate change in developing countries are devastating than the first class nations.

It is just unfair because of the fact that most developed nations where much higher polutions came from contributing the most to climate change doesn’t felt the effects of their doing rather the poor and vulnerable countries suffers in their behalfs. 

Hoping that this will be an eye opener for countries which have polutants greater than most of the countries to unite and do something about the polutions problems in their own countries.

Spare the Health Care

Recently, news about health care attack is all over the media. Hospitals, health care workers and even the confined patients are greatly affected. 

It’s just sad that a supposedly neutral ground is being considered hostile and the citizens who seek refuge died because of this. Hoping that the government and any opposing groups will have to honor that neutral ground such as hospitals and schools should remained untouched to ensure the safety of the people who are victims of circumstances.

Let’s advocate to protect and prevent attacks on health care and the service providers. Provide their necessary needs and supplies to save lives.

Warnings Ahead

Depression is one of the common cause of morbidity and mortality especially among teenagers.

Every minute there a risk where people commits suicide and in order to prevent any awareness is one good way to have.

They are easy to kill but they can also kill anybody regardless of age,gender and social status which is why the Department of Health is informing the public to take precautionary measures in order to prevent infection of diseases such as zika,chikungunya and dengue.

Let’s Talk

There were stigma about mental health related problems and depression is not spared. In fact, Depression is one of the leading cause of morbidity and disability worldwide.

World Health Organization encourage people to talk openly about depression and together we can overcome this. 

If you have nobody to talk to and needed company, don’t just sit there and stare at nothing but go out, walk a little. Maybe you’ll meet somebody whom you can talk or you’ll be able to listen to their stories instead. Don’t be afraid. You must know that you are not alone. 

Where’s Justice?

On the news, there were people who talks about the actions that should be made on rape victims. One of which is to marry the accused. Where’s justice in that?

Mostly rape victims are at the age where they felt helpless and vulnerable and the age group is much lower than that of the one commiting the crime. Doing something against your will especially if brutal force is involved can traumatize a person or can lead to its death upon refusal.

It is the whole process of the act and what comes next is the truama of being a rape victim. It is a serious problem and can lead to depression, suicide and other mental health diseases. Where’s justice in that?

If law makers think that a victim being married to the rapist will have the happily ever after moment, maybe we must subject those law makers first to psychological test to prove their sanity and being fit for their job because other lives depends on what they are making. 

These rape victims deserve justice. A freedom to choose whom they marry and to see their perpetruators behind bars. Freedom to accept or reject any aftermath effects of the act and be supported by the society they lived in without judgement. 
Where’s Justice? Who knows where but one thing is certain, we need it now.
