In my opinion, the most important “Last Mile” issue is providing adequate healthcare to people in underdeveloped countries. The issue of healthcare is not new, and there are certainly people such as Paul Farmer and companies like BD that are working to combat this issue. From reading Paul Farmer’s book, I learned that patients often need very specialized attention and it can be hard to reach the “last mile” to help every person. When Dr. Farmer spent an entire day walking to one patient, he went above and beyond what most people would have done. Yet, when he went out of his way to provide aid to one person, he sacrificed helping many patients at his clinic. For this reason, it is hard to efficiently provide direct care to everyone, simply
[Cost] Cost could potentially be the biggest factor of the iron triangle and perhaps the side of the model that leaves administrators most puzzled. With new technology being released quarterly, drug prices soaring, a new aging population that can't be supported by the current workforce, Medicare cutting reimbursement payments and leaning towards insolvency, and the price per service continues to rise it seems as if cutting costs down may seem impossible. Not only have hospitals and clinics began looking for more cost-efficient ways to provide care or, unfortunately which programs to cut, the political arena has been evaluating this as well. Since Obamacare has not lived up to its true potential and glory an alternative method must be identified before the nation's model of healthcare implodes from high costs.

The documentary film "Escape fire" is a simple truth that sets out issues about the cracked US healthcare system.

We have to be aware and find even unthinkable solutions to save our healthcare system. To me the hospitals, doctors offices and other medical institutions should be the only place where saving human lives is considers number one priority not the moeny that dominates and rules the whole world.
The acclaimed Canadian author Joseph Boyden is often praised for providing an insightful look into Indigenous culture and history through his debut, Three Day Road. While the novel does explore the haunting memories of an Indigenous soldier, it also tackles concepts about storytelling and the power of words. Consequently, this essay investigates the question; How does Joseph Boyden use literary devices and narrative structure in Three Day Road to illustrate the power of stories and language? The novel serves as an examination of the power of words and the different roles they play in communication,
Developed countries around the world have embraced the universal healthcare, with America being the only exception. Access to healthcare is considered one of the most important things for the progress of a country. However, many people in America consider that the healthcare system in the country is quite inefficient. It is estimated that more than 45 million Americans have no medical insurance.
but it also greatly reduces the administrative and non-medical waste that has no benefits to patients. Pursuit of profit and wealth should not be in a field that is meant to care for others; companies and corporations are maximizing on patients’ misfortunes and are therefore shortchanging the quality of care in order to get the most money. This was warned by Maimonides in 1190 AD when he said “Do not allow thirst for profit, ambition for renown, and admiration to interfere with my profession for these are the enemies of truth and can lead me astray in the great task of attending to the welfare of your creatures” (Nelson, Alan). Despite the fact that a single payer universal healthcare system is not advocated by any current presidential candidate, it is both morally and economically the most sound system.
Having accessibility to any form of healthcare is important to everyone in the world. Despite the fact that it is available to most countries, it does not mean that it is available to everyone.

Specifically, when focusing on Italy and America, there are major differences regarding their healthcare systems.
