There are several components that could be beneficial towards the attainment of sustainability. The presence of health insurance covers for the general public. The Obama care is among those insurance covers that could guarantee the general public access to health care (Sandy et.al, 2009). Living standards are on the rise and most people may not be in a position to support some of their basic needs such as health. However, with the presence of covers such as the Obama care, most of the American people are in a position to access health care. The indication here is that almost everybody within America

The video is a great introduction to public health which helps one better understand what public health nurses do and how much of an impact they can have on both the individual and community level.

Disease prevention is a central pillar of public health practice. Classically, disease prevention is a biomedical approach aimed at addressing the burden of ill health. Within the biomedical framework disease prevention has three phases: primary, secondary and tertiary.
Prevention may be accomplished in the pre-disease state by measures designed to promote general optimum health or by the specific protection of human beings against disease agents or the establishment of barriers against agents in the environment. These procedures have been termed primary prevention. As soon as the disease is detectable, early in pathogenesis, secondary prevention may be accomplished by early diagnosis

The meaning of “health promotion” has been defined as helping people to change their lifestyles and enable them to move toward a state of optimal health. In a paper written by the U.S. Public Health Service in 1980, health promotion was set forth as a process that would advocate health and will likely enhance personal (individual, family and community), private (professional and business) and public government(local, state, and federal). The goal is that through support of positive health practices, a societal norm will evolve (Edelman & Mandle, 2009).

There are many ethical issues and dilemmas which can arise in Public Health practice. Ethics is concerned with morals, duties and values (Seedhouse, 2008).
