The article I chose is one written by Wehrmeister et al. (2017) with the title Is governance, gross domestic product, inequality, population size or country surface area associated with coverage and equity of health interventions? Ecological analyses of cross-sectional surveys from 80 countries.
The authors present an insight in the conclusion of their survey that equity and levels of health coverage interventions have a positive correlation with, non-violence, political stability, and Gross Domestic Product and an inverse relationship with surface areas. Hence counties with small surface areas and high GDP are more likely to demonstrate equitable and high coverage (Wehrmeister et al.,2017).
Several studies have identified significant relationships with economic variables such as GDP or income. GDP is a widely applied measure of the economy’s production or output and is best defined as a country’s totality of services or goods produced within a specified period of time. GDP is important because it enables central banks and policymakers to judge where the economy stands; whether it is expanding or contracting; if it requires a restraint or a boost; and warn of impending inflation or recession. Business, policymakers, and economists also get to analyze impacts of economic variables such as spending plans and taxes, economic shocks (spiking of oil prices) as well as the fiscal and monetary policy.
The conclusion in the article of concern points a vital relationship between health and the economy and this should not be underestimated. How much money should go into healthcare? Investing in health should be a priority for every society. When spending on healthcare, both as GDP’s share and per capita is low, then the country falls short of what is necessary to meet the delivery issues of health care (Addo, 2016). The US spending on health care is on a drastic rise but the health systems are still lagging behind. The most felt impact of flagged spending on healthcare is the drastic rise in unemployment. This will eventually lead to a reduced GDP as more people live substandard lives in the streets. A balance should exist as an efficient system frees up resources that would allow more private investments in sectors that are productive (Thorpe & Hockenberry, 2014)..
