Industrialization of Health

Industrialization brought disaster to all aspects of life, including health worlds. The globalization of world order has made defective with the onset of the various impacts of human kind, one of which is global warming effect that directly affects the quality of human health.

Blum theory states that among the four factors that influence the degree / health status of individuals and society places the greatest environmental factors contributing to the occurrence of disease in humans

Exploitation of the environment on human regardless of ecosystems and sustainable development will result in a shift in the balance of nature. The impact is beginning a process of continuous damage

Poverty is a key word that must be solved with the strategy and supported by various forms of legitimating issued by the state. Development paradigm interests of owners of foreign capital to give a slap to the agrarian sector, where the sector is largely dependent life of Indonesian society. BPS data in March 2011 states, most of the poor live in rural population is 63.20%. While 57.78% of the poor worked in agriculture

Poverty is also impact by not noticed by the public health, due to the need for health care out to the necessities of life. Data from BPS called the result of poverty dominate expenditures food is 72.98% and non-food (housing, clothing, education, and health) of 27.02%.

The role of the state in protecting its people in the health sector should begin by seeing how much people can access health services. A chipment Health services and absolute quality provided by the state, as mandated by the Constitution UUD 1945 in chapter 34 paragraph 3, that the state is responsible for the provision of health care facilities and public service facilities are decent, so we need a policy that allows public access to the health sector feasible and inexpensive

Went to Singapore

The fact reveals that the number of patients is non-Singaporean who seek treatment at the Hospital of Singapore reached 30 percent. From the number of international patients, about 60 percent comes from Indonesia. Confidence factor to quality health care for the Indonesian middle class and above the medical treatment abroad, especially Singapore is one of the country’s inability to provide adequate health care and cheap

In the fact is then not get respond to increased healthcare in the country but with the policy of Government Regulation No. 36 Year 2010 concerning List of Business Closed and Open to Foreign Capital Ownership mention, that the health sector is one sector that can be owned by foreign capital. This policy opened opportunities for the entry of foreign investors will shift so that the social function of the hospital into the economic function, in which health institutions will be competing to reap the benefits of the health sector. Industrialization of health of the world will side with those who have willingness to enough money, not on those who can not afford.

Role of the state mandated in the Health Act 2009 is in lieu of Law No. 23 of 1992 provides a tremendous responsibility to the state to plan, organize, organize, develop and oversee the implementation efforts of equitable and affordable health care by the community. Also, resources in the fair health and equitable for all citizens for obtain health status of the highest. Responsible for the implementation of public health insurance is implemented by national social security system for efforts private health.

The essence of national development is the intellectual life of the nation, creating the general welfare, protect the homeland of Indonesia, and help the establishment of world order, lasting peace and social justice. The meaning of national development should also be able to reduce the values of balance in every aspect of community social life. Since the beginning of this nation is faced with enormous responsibilities, namely to continue the struggle of post-colonial colonialism in the form of national development in every society the social dimension. However, the question whether this noble mandate can be run easily. Perhaps it need not be answered because the reality of life today can draw portraits of Indonesia in implementing a national development program after independence from colonial rule in 1945.
