Improving healthcare is a primary objective for any government and the public forms the main target audience for related projects. For instance, most governments build healthcare premises such as hospitals and clinics to ensure healthcare services are accessible to the majority of the public. Traditional education and healthcare services, in multicultural societies, have been associated with discrimination cases which bar educational achievement among the victims. As a result, most states in the U.S. are developing mechanisms to address a traditional vice that promotes racial discrimination. Through higher learning institutions, both state and federal governments believe a change in healthcare services mentality would elevate medical standards in the U.S. As a result, the City University of New York – the biggest public university in the U.S. – has initiated a Health CUNY with a mandate of providing medical benefits to admitted students. There are dynamic health intervention measures that would aid in achieving educational success as illustrated with health policy development called Health CUNY in the U.S.
Success in educational achievement is possible if the health status of a student is guaranteed. Health CUNY provides a suitable strategy on how educational achievement would be attained in a higher learning institution. Firstly, it is wise to commend Health CUNY for adopting a pilot implementation process which slowly accommodates students into a system. A pilot implementation process would allow a government to determine and address any challenges that arise from this procedure. Nevertheless, Health CUNY is also strategic when it considers needy students for health programs. Enrolling needy students in public projects motivates them and this leads to high educational success as evidenced in modern-day U.S. universities. Health intervention which entails covering chronic diseases is a vital measure which guarantees minimal cases of student absenteeism due to health complications. Collectively, all health intervention measures are critical in ensuring successful levels of educational achievement.
Health CUNY should consider a universal health cover as an amendment to its policy to address the main concern of providing medical cover to needy but bright students. A universal health cover would provide a comprehensive medical cover which intervenes on all health cases of identified beneficiaries. It is important to note that needy students have tight personal and student budgets which forces them to seek part-time jobs in fast food restaurants. In most cases, earning made from part-time jobs is used for personal expenses. In most cases, emergency funds for medical cases are not addressed as personal expenses and are not prioritized by students. This is to state that Health CUNY should consider providing a universal medical cover that intervenes on all health cases whether chronic or not.
As noted above, health intervention aids a country in producing healthy graduates ready for the labor market. Health CUNY illustrates that educating the elite individuals in society could aid in transforming the perception of public health and education services. Most public programs that are initiated in higher learning institutions are successfully implemented on a large scope involving a bigger audience. Graduates are considered as the key drivers of an economy and, therefore, their health must be considered by state and federal governments. The main health intervention measure – that can be adopted to help needy students with education achievement – entails universal health coverage. This would cover all medical expenses of identified students whose focus would be turned to education in its entirety. Health CUNY should consider amending partial sections of its health benefits that cover medical expenses which protect students from chronic diseases only.
