1 Everybody knows about the world situation with the refugees. Global refugee number almost exceeds mark 60 million. The shocking fact is that something like that hasn’t happened even during the World War II. Every refugee needs professional help, support and at the same time some health workers also have to leave their homes. All this leads to the undesirable consequences and the changes in health care system.

2 The enduring wealth gap denotes that there are many people who are forced to spend 1,90 $ per day while 62 billionaries possess the wealth which is equal to the savings of nearly half the world’s population. This balance means that people living in poverty usually suffer from health problems more often and accordingly they have no ability for proper health care.

3 Politics and power shifts have benefits as every year they lead to money contributions into public health system. No matter what a country is — rich or poor — when it concerns health investments.

4 Nowadays the health system as a whole is admitted by the American government and strengthening health systems bill should be approved there as it is an important part of foreing aid and global health secururity.

5 Climate change bother the world. To cut the long story short, it’s because the rising sea levels, carbon dioxide levels, temperatures which have harmful effects on our health.  Among the threats are asthma and chikungunya to mental illness. It’s necessary to stop curbing carbon emissions as the Marshall Islands, for instance,  are disappearing step by step.

6 Nowadays emerging and waning  health threats are Polio and HIV which have taken away million lives. The last one will totally disappear soon, on the other hand, Zika and Ebola viruses can spread and it will be the challenge for health security.  But many countries have already forgotten about these dangers.

7 It seems to be unbelievable but air pollution can kill 6 million people as it has happened in China. In the United Arab Emirates the situation is even more tremendous. There are 80 micrograms of pollutants per cubic meter. It horrifies indeed. Smog, smoking are the factors which influence air composition and in its turn it leads to  health problems.

8 A reversal in the health worker shortage indicates about the immense shortage of doctors, nurses and midwives. The solution is near. The global strategy which is called “Human Resources for Health: Workforce 2030” will take place this year. Health  workforces’ aim is to make the health care system more eficient.

9  Mental health problems among trauma survivors  are the typical occurrences which are usually caused by war, displacement, violence, natural disasters etc. It’s clear that health care system cant’t cope with this situation because of lack of social service workers.

10 Ebola is an horrible disease nevertheless many people have managed to survive being infected this year. That means that medical workers will face with the difficult task because their duty is to care about all those patients with special needs. Everything indicates that we’ll know much more new information about Ebola virus soon.

Am I Eligible for Mesothelioma Compensation?

medial team

Mesothelioma a very deadly form of cancer which has been linked to asbestos exposure. The mesothelioma prognosis is often a very frightening one, with just 4 in 10 people who are diagnosed surviving for one year after diagnosis; just 8% are still alive within five years.

But there is help in the form of mesothelioma trust funds and other funds which have been established to help people who have been affected by this aggressive form of cancer. Mesothelioma compensation eligibility varies according to the precise trust fund or the organization/agency that’s offering the funds.

Mesothelioma life expectancy is often just a matter of months, which makes it impractical for many patients to file a lawsuit – a process that can take months or even years. Due to the fast-moving nature of this type of cancer and its high prevalence rate in people with a history of asbestos exposure, mesothelioma trust funds and other resources have been established to provide immediate financial assistance and services.

Generally speaking, mesothelioma compensation is provided to three groups of people.

Mesothelioma Compensation for Patients With Mesothelioma Lung Cancer

Individuals who’ve received a mesothelioma diagnosis as the result of past asbestos exposure are virtually always eligible for mesothelioma compensation.

In many cases, it’s not necessary to file a lawsuit or other legal claim; the patient typically just needs to provide documentation. The required documentation will vary according to the organization, but generally speaking, the individual will be asked to provide proof that they worked in a profession that left them prone to asbestos exposure.

The individual will also need to provide a letter from a physician or other medical documentation verifying their mesothelioma diagnosis.

Mesothelioma Compensation for Families of People Who’ve Died from Mesothelioma

Sadly, the mesothelioma prognosis is often quite poor and some pass away in a matter of weeks or months after diagnosis. Mesothelioma victims may not be alive to file a legal claim, but family members can still seek compensation if they’ve lost a loved one to this aggressive disease.

Each fund, agency or organization is slightly different, but generally, the family members must submit a death certificate with documentation that the loved one died of mesothelioma or a related complication. In some cases, the family member may need to provide some sort of evidence that the decedent worked in a field where they were exposed to asbestos.

Many mesothelioma compensation funds that provide assistance to families have a time limit, which is typically related to the statute of limitations in the state where the asbestos exposure occurred. So it’s important to seek help as soon as possible to ensure you fall within the required timeframe.

Mesothelioma Compensation for Veterans

Many men and women with a mesothelioma diagnosis are veterans who endured asbestos exposure in the military. The Department of Veteran’s Affairs (VA) oversees mesothelioma compensation for military veterans.

Military veterans with a mesothelioma diagnosis are typically eligible for special VA benefits. To obtain assistance, benefits and other support, the individual must provide proof and documentation that their asbestos exposure was a direct result of their military service.

Assistance is also available to veterans with other asbestos-related injuries, such as asbestosis and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

The VA oversees mesothelioma compensation and services for injured veterans who were exposed to asbestos.
