I have never seen this thesis in a course on medical imperialism, but I have heard it discussed in class. What do you think of the idea?
It is very interesting that the Medical Imperialism thesis would suggest that scientists from foreign countries are not interested in the welfare of the native populations because they are interested in profits. If this is true, then it seems like they will be more willing to work with us to improve the health care systems in our country because they have an interest in helping to improve health care in their own countries.
The thesis goes on to say that there is little that we can do in terms of improving medical research in foreign countries. Well, this is true and yet, if we really want to help these indigenous populations that they may be trying to sustain, then we should at least try to learn from them. If we just look at other nations in the world who have taken these steps, then we can see that there are many improvements that can be made.
There are some things that we can all do to improve health care and these include things like educating our government officials and our medical schools and universities and foreign governments on how to better our healthcare system. Some of these can also involve educating our people on the needs and diseases of these indigenous populations. Theses would include things like better nutrition, better infrastructure, better health care services and access to medical services.
We also need to educate our people on how to maintain good health. The thesis also says that we should learn from the way that the natives in foreign countries have managed their health care systems, especially when it comes to immunization and disease control. We must be willing to work with them in this regard and try to use their methods in order to improve our own health care systems.
If this thesis is right, then the American people could be looking at a future where we would be using foreign resources in an attempt to reduce the number of health problems in our country. This could mean that our population becomes more susceptible to communicable diseases and even though we have a very strong health care system, we will be allowing the natives to suffer in order to save us the time and money we would spend in maintaining the health care for ourselves.
Indeed, I believe we are a great nation and that we should continue to do what it takes to be the most successful. However, I also believe that we should be open to learning from those around us and from the rest of the world. If we look around the world, we should realize that our world does indeed owe a lot to those native people who came before us and in many cases they have saved our nation.
As long as these populations are around, we can expect to have a very strong health care system that we can depend on in the future and one that has a very positive effect on our health. In fact, many Native Americans are very proud of the advancements in their health care systems and they would welcome help from the rest of the world.
If we do not take advantage of what they have to offer, then we might as well say goodbye to medical aid to these people. If we are going to make our health care system the best it can be, then we need to be able to learn from what they have learned and continue to adapt what they have learned to create our own health care systems. This could mean that the cost of our health care services are going up while at the same time the quality of health care is going down.
Imperialism and medical imperialism go hand in hand and the sooner we realize that, the better off we are. for our society. Please consider this thesis.
