Globalization

Globalization has both positive and negative impacts on development of a country thus, an
awareness of the potential good and bad arising from the globalizing process is essential to
shaping the preferred outcome (Kavinya, 2014). Two negative effects of globalization on
health are human trafficking and illegal trade of counterfeit medications, alcohol, and
cigarettes across the borders. Border security in the U.S. is at an all-time high and has been
but for other countries this is not the case. Human trafficking is still highly prevalent in the
U.S. and has been almost impossible to stop. Steroids are a great example of illegal trading
of medications and alternative therapies that are dangerous and cause harm to the people
that use them. They can cause long-term negative effects and ultimately lower the quality
of living. Health issues that transcend national boundaries include environmental
degradation and climate change, inequality and lifestyle changes, access to medicines and
health knowledge as well as new and re-emerging diseases (Kavinya, 2014). A positive
effect of globalization is the technological advances and creation of medications and
vaccines. This leads to the development of treatment and prevention techniques. Another
positive effect is the ability to share information or data electronically. Internet will
substantially improve the management and delivery of health care services, the close watch
of communicable diseases, the monitoring of antibiotic resistance and several other
applications in the health sector (Feachem, 2001).

Hi Clark,
I concur with your assertion that globalization impacts the county’s health care system
positively and negatively. In my view, on the positive side, globalization may lead to a rapid
reaction to emergencies. For instance, an outbreak of an epidemic in a particular country, health
professionals are sort from different countries to give a backup. This leads to the global

development of infrastructure and communication channels to enable rapid response to
catastrophes (“International instruments,” n.d.,).
Besides, on the flip side, globalization may lead to the rapid spread of infectious diseases
across the borders. This remains a threat to everyone more, especially the needy communities.
Research shows that globalization is either intrinsically good, not bad, but relatively an
inexorable force that requires to be inferred for the well being of humans of people.
Nevertheless, some studies have exhibited that globalization has helped to improve the
economies and health care systems of the developing countries (“International instruments,”
n.d.,). It has promoted free trade in capital technology and impressions.
