Health Promotion and Education as prevention of social pathology: A global Millennium Goal
Health promotion and education is an organic part of health intervention and a valuable bridge between Health and Social Work. Several diseases as well as many risk factors for social pathology are directly linked to under-education, illiteracy and absence of general overview not only among public, but surprisingly among Health Care and Social Work students.
Under-education and absence of health promotion is responsible for the spread of many communicable diseases such as HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmittable diseases. Among non-communicable epidemic disorders, absence of education in social and health sciences is responsible for under nutrition in Sub-Saharan Africa and South East Asia, as well as in some areas of Latin America. Under-education is sometimes a consequence of cast systems, religious, gender, economic and/or racial discrimination resulting in several social and health pathologies, not just in marginalized communities (refugees, migrant women with minors, homeless, etc.) surprisingly not only in developing (low resource) but also in developed countries.
Therefore, education in Social Sciences (Social Work, Sociology, Psychology) and health subjects (Medicine, Nursing and Physiotherapy for elderly and chronical ill. Midwifery for women and minors should be an organic part of education not only in schools of healthcare and in arts educational programs, but at least for first year as a part of universal baccalaureate of letters, health sciences, arts, and even in Natural and Technical Sciences. Graduates of colleges independently of completed program, arts or sciences, are faced on a daily basis of the worldwide consequences of under-education even illiteracy as a part of economic, racial, gender, religious discrimination and isolation. Lack of education in health and social sciences may be considered as root(s) of social pathology especially such as in borderline age groups, minors, youth and elderly, vice versa as deadly synergy for global health and social welfare.
