UNICEF (United Nations International Children 's Emergency Fund) UNICEF deals with child marriage as part of its broader approach to gender discrimination that undermines the rights of children and women.

Save the Children is another meritable and highly regarded NGDO. Save the Children focus their work on issues surrounding children and childbirth. Their primary and original goal has been and continues to be to eradicate injustice surrounding infant deaths during and immediately after birth, and the prevention of death to mothers during and surrounding giving birth. Save the Children has retained an ongoing campaign which focuses on a specific goal, that is ending unnecessary deaths to infants and mothers during childbirth as a political priority. Conversely, Oxfam has three main areas of focus: development work, in order to improve communities by helping to reduce poverty with enduring, sustainable solutions based on each community's needs; humanitarian work, to assist those affected by natural disasters and conflict; and political work, in order to influence policy decisions that could impact and ideally reduce conflict at local, national, and international levels.
Evaluation (Strengths and weaknesses with evidence) Strengths: It can effectively reduce the existing injury of domestic violence and provide follow-up care. (Ke,Wang&Zhang,2005,pp.138-141) After 1970,the intervention of health care system became one of the main topics in the area of anti-domestic violence. Active prevention and treatment policy were formulated and the rate of “general intimate couple violence” experienced an eighteen percent reduction.（Ke,Wang&Zhang,2005,p.140; Truman, J. L. ,2011,p.2). Weaknesses: Vast resourses and professionals are needed and the situation of demand exceeds supply is likely to occur. Solution Three (Topic sentence) The most fundamental method is to improve rural residents’ awareness of human rights and gender
For example, differences in mobility between elderly people and younger populations or differences in mortality rates between people from different social classes. Equality in health is about ensuring that poorer and vulnerable people in our communities have the opportunity and fair chance to reach the maximum health that they can achieve. For instance, when the patients are recovered and discharged , poor living environment may be a cause that makes the patient ill again. Just as mentioned above, Social conditions have a direct relationship with health. For instance, Wilkinson (1996) analyzes data of mortality and morbidity from several countries and finds that the widest gaps in health inequalities are found in countries that have the widest gaps in income.
According to UNFPA (The United Nations Population Fund) “A women’s chance of dying or becoming disabled during pregnancy and child birth is closely connected to her social and economic status, the norms and values for her culture and the geographic remoteness of her home”. It has also been found that poor and marginalized women are at the higher risk of maternal death as compared to aristocrate women. Hypertension, diabetes, respiratory problems, obesity and infections are some common health problems that occur during pregnancy or at the time of delivery. Maintaining Oral health /oral hygiene is also essential during pregnancy .Its proper care give benefit to both mother and foetus as well. However, there is a common misconception that it is not safe to obtain dental services while pregnancy that is a myth.
Understanding health literacy and what it means is very important, especially if a person is a nurse or works in the healthcare system. According to Healthy People (2010), Health literacy means the degree to which individuals have the capacity to obtain, process and understand basic health information and services needed to make appropriate health decisions. Patients that are at the biggest risk for low health literacy in our communities are patients the are part of our low-income communities, elderly, minorities and society members that have lower education levels. Unfortunately, the impact of low literacy on health promotion and health education is significant. Patients that have low health literacy are at risk for frequent hospitalization
One’s health status is linked to their income, social status, education, health services, and social support networks that are readily available to them, which is why individuals from low income families or even low income countries tend to receive more aliments then individuals of high social status. Individuals who live in poverty stricken areas have lower health services in their vicinity or even the lack of education that may aid in the prevention of these diseases. If an individual has young children but must travel hours to their closest primary health care provider, the person must take into consideration of who will be able to watch over their children. In areas where public services are available such as day cares, individuals are more inclined to leaving their children in order to receive the health care attention they need. Although Alma Ata does bring up the great idea that health is not only being ill and takes into consideration all factors that affect an individual’s overall health, an issue I feel that comes up is the fact that in order to be considered health by Alma Ata you must not be ill, have any mental health issues, and have living conditions that are considered fit for the general public.
African American families are at risk for SIDS due to the environment that the baby is discharged. As a nurse leader, I find it crucial when it comes to homegoing for them to understand why we have safe sleep education. In Ohio, we have a program called, The Stork’s Nest. It provides vouchers for items which are tailored to the poor community but encourages education by offering these incentives. Providing a meal and transportation helps to encourage participation and incentivizes attendance.
Salud y Bienestar is a national program which helps to provide vital information to older Hispanics, as well as families, and their caregivers; about the best way to keep this condition under control and avoid further complications. It was originally founded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Partnering up with other groups provides a much better program with lots of resources. The program has a goal of lowering complications due to diabetes by providing better care among Hispanic older adults; delaying the start of diabetes. In order to achieve these goals they must partner with organizations who focus on the community as well as health professionals.
They could encourage teenage girls to speak up about their predicaments or prevent them entirely. These centres that are specifically for women can handle patients with a greater amount of care and expertise that a physician or hospital may not be capable of. For example, Planned Parenthood has a RESTORE program that aids women that have been victims of sexual assault, abuse, or rape; they offer free counseling to guide victims through what happened and support in reporting the crime and ensuing court hearings. These are things that a hospital or physician might not be able to do, but a health-care centre for women
S. Sanger wanted to illustrate to the courts that the US had a high maternal mortality rate compared to other nations. Subsequently, she wanted to argue, due to the socioeconomics of the world 's population growth, there would be a problem producing enough food to feed societies if population growth was not controlled. She attributed this measure to the lack of accessible contraception and made a connection between poverty, large families and their inability to obtain contraceptives to control fertility which was reflected to her own personal aspects. Sanger had a compassion for women that had suffered through repeated pregnancies that shorten their lives and she was determine to gain the rights for many women that wanted control over their fertility. She believed that no women should endure unnecessary suffering through her sexually and reproductive choice when there is contraceptive available to control pregnancy.
