There’s A Reason Americans Pass By Homeless People In The Street Without A Second Glance

first_imgBusiness Insider:Some people’s willingness to accept income inequality has everything to do with their perception of choice, Pacific Standard’s Tom Jacobs reports.Psychologists Krishna Savani of Columbia Business School and Aneeta Rattan of Stanford University expand on the topic in a study published by Psychological Science:“The concept of choice makes people less disturbed by facts about existing wealth inequality in the United States, more likely to underestimate the role of societal factors in individuals’ successes, less likely to support the redistribution of educational resources, and less likely to support raising taxes on the rich—even if doing so would help resolve a budget deficit crisis.Read the whole story: Business Insider More of our Members in the Media >last_img read more

States’ report card highlights threat of weather, infectious diseases

first_imgToday Trust for America’s Health (TFAH), a Washington, D.C.–based health advocacy group, in its annual report card ranking states’ preparedness for public health threats, noted that the leading challenges this year took the form of natural weather disasters, including hurricanes Harvey and Irma.”Preparedness was weather-related this year,” said John Auerbach, MBA, the president and chief executive officer of TFAH, in a press conference. “But preparedness is inconsistent across states.””As a nation, we—year after year—fail to fully support public health and preparedness,” Auerbach added in a TFAH press release. “If we don’t improve our baseline funding and capabilities, we’ll continue to be caught completely off-guard when hurricanes, wildfires, and infectious disease outbreaks hit.”The report also noted that preparedness in general—including for infectious disease threats—was down among states compared with last year, and preparedness is being undermined by underfunding. Experts also underscored the problem of vaccine hesitancy.”What it takes to prepare for bioterrorism, major disease threats or major disasters is also essential to respond to ongoing health threats,” TFAH said in the report. “The bad news is that the accomplishments achieved to improve public health and preparedness for all hazards are being undermined due to severe budget cuts and lack of prioritization.”Half of states scored 5 or lowerAccording to the TFAH report, US states and territories experienced 15 separate weather and climate disaster events, each with losses exceeding $1 billion, and that excluded recent wildfires in California. Hurricanes Harvey and Maria alone killed nearly 200 people, displaced thousands in Texas and Louisiana, and produced catastrophic flooding and major public health emergencies.Celeste Philip, MD, MPH, surgeon general and secretary of the Florida Department of Health (Florida Health) said her state faced Zika last year and then Hurricane Irma this year—major public health crises that have tested Florida Health’s ability to  rapidly respond to a situation.”Federal investment is critical for building a public health infrastructure that has the capacity to prepare for and recover from weather and other hazardous situations,” Philip said in the TFAH report.The report card is based on 10 key indicators of public health preparedness. Half of all states scored a 5 or lower (out of 10), with Alaska scoring the lowest (2), and Massachusetts and Rhode Island scoring the highest (9). Delaware, North Carolina, and Virginia each scored 8 out of 10. Florida received a 6.That is down from last year, when Massachusetts scored a 10, North Carolina and Washington state scored a 9, only 9 states scored 5 or lower, and no state scored lower than 3.But Auerbach said the report card, a 116-page document called “Ready or Not? Protecting the Public’s Health from Diseases, Disasters, and Bioterrorism,” is not a comprehensive analysis.”Some of the states lacking several of the indicators have protected the public well this year,” said Auerbach. “But the report card is necessary to provide the public a better understanding of preparedness.”Focus on federal fundingThroughout the press conference, Auerbach emphasized the lack of federal funding for public health threats. Time and again, Auerbach said, an emergency, whether it’s in the form of Zika or wildfires, leaves states scrambling for federal dollars.”Federal funding has been cut by more than half since 2002,” Auerbach said. In 2002, federal officials spent $940 million on health emergencies. In 2017, that number dropped to $667 million.In the report card, TFAH called for a complementary Public Health Emergency Fund to provide immediate surge funding for specific actions regarding major emerging threats.Auerbach said that money is crucial, especially because only 19 states plus Washington, DC, increased or maintained their public health budgets this year. Last year 26 states increased or maintained public health funding.Public health funding commitment was the first indicator of a state’s preparedness. Other indicators included national health security preparedness, public health department accreditation, antibiotic resistance efforts, flu vaccination rates, enhanced nurse licensure compact participation, United States climate alliance, public health laboratories, and paid sick leave laws.Addressing undervaccinationKaren Remley, MD, MBA, CEO of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) spoke during the press conference about the need for more vaccination efforts across the country, citing outbreaks of measles and whooping coughs as costly public health crises that could have been avoided with routine immunizations.”The AAP maintains that vaccines are safe, effective, and save lives,” Remley said. Only 20 states reported vaccinating more than half of their populations against seasonal influenza, a rate that climbed from 10 states in last year’s report.Auerbach and Remley said that states across the nation had to focus on—in addition to vaccination—antimicrobial resistance, calling it one of the biggest threats facing the public. Twenty states plus Washington, DC, had 70% or more of hospitals reporting that they met antibiotic stewardship program core elements in 2016.See also: Dec 19 TFAH press releaseDec 19 TFAH “Ready or Not?” reportAug 30 CIDRAP News story “Experts: Avoid unneeded tetanus shots in wake of Harvey”Apr 20 CIDRAP News story “US preparedness index finds sluggish, uneven response”last_img read more
