Mom’s story about the bees

Actually I am a bit afraid of bees because my mother once told me her story when she was a child. She was just 10 years old when she played with her friends under a tree that actually has many bees hanging from a branch of the tree. When they realized that there were many bees chasing them, my mother was left behind running away from the tree but the bees were faster and they stung her. She said that it was so painful and she found her face and body swelling and redness after being stung by the bees. She cried on the way home . She was brought to the hospital and got treatment from a medical doctor. After that accident, she was so traumatized and her story also haunted me. So when I was being chased by the bees, I ran quickly away the bees and went into someone’s house to seek protection from the bees.

A discussion of health service management in Indonesia and its effect to the number of Indonesian citizens who go abroad for seeking medical treatment

Indonesia is a large country with more than 200 billion inhabitans. The number of people who have illness are abundance too. They actually have to get good medical services in their own country. However why may of them are seeking medical treatments abroad? One important cause is the lack of good health service management in Indonesia. Many doctors have good personal capacity but they do not work in a good team. Besides, our medical facilities are left behind and may hospitals only have conventional medical equipments. How can we do medical service better from years to years if we do not manage those problems with a better health service management? Health service management becomes an important issue of Indonesia government vision. As happens in US, Obama put a better health service management as his vision that he will struggle for. In Indonesia, our government also does almost similar thing in which we have a big concern about. We will run the national health coverage in 2014. By having a better health service management, our citizens do not need to find a better medical services abroad, and they can improve their trust to their nation.

Smoking Should be Banned in Public Places

Introduction Nowadays, many people are smokers. Not only adults, but also young people and moreover children are smokers too. They think that smoking is cool and can make them seem more viril. It worries parents a lot and also people who work in medical area. However, is this matter quite affecting governmental issue? Contents Even more cases of disease related to smoking are increasing in health services, many people thought that smoking does not significantly correlate to disease. They reason that certain people who are heavy smokers are still living healthily. Whereas, our previous minister of health is a non smoker and she suffered from lung cancer. Those data are enough to make them think that smoking does not positively correlate with lung cancer. So why should they stop smoking and why should the government ban smoking in public places? In theory, passive smokers have the same risk of disease as active smokers. With this consideration, many people also think that doing harm to other people who do not smoke by its smoke is not suitable with the rule of human right. That is why smoking in public places should be banned. We appreciate people who smoke because it is their right, but other people who do not smoke must be taken into consideration too. The role of government is crucial in this matter. There is no tough regulation that serves to reduce smokers in Indonesia. Moreover many cigarette companies plays important roles in developing this country too. They are present in many aspects like education system (by providing scholarships), music industry (by sponsoring events), and so on. This is actually an important decision by government whether they want to have better health for their citizens or only put money as an important thing. Conclusion Smoking problems are so dilemmatic. May cigarette industry have already played important roles in the development of this country. However, human right aspect where people who do not smoke have the right to inhale air without smoke is important to be considered too.
