America the Great?

Make America great again.

We’ve all heard the slogan, but the question remains, how great is America?

A little over a year ago, the UN General Assembly introduced a number of goals to be met by 2030, a 17 point list that aimed to eliminate poverty, environmental threats and sustain equality.  Each point represents a Sustainable Development Goal, otherwise known as SDGs.  The SDGs were designed for all countries whether it was considered poor, middle class or rich.  The UN is focused on diminishing poverty around the world, while still growing the economy, ensuring quality education, improving people’s health all while providing jobs.

Referring the United Nations SGDs as a guideline, the above chart was published in The Lancet, ranking countries based on health and living standards.  The top three consisted of Iceland, Singapore and Sweden.  Where does America stand? Although leading in economic standings, concerning health they fell to number 28.  These findings are not only based on the healthcare system of each country, but takes into consideration diseases, suicide rates, road injuries, smoking, water quality and war.

Out of 188, the US stands at 28, however, they DID score the highest in water, sanitation and child development.  Where did they lack?  The high rates of violence within the country is where they took a real beating.

Considered to be one of the most developed countries in the world, the US is increasingly lacking when it comes to public health.  Why? Their lack of attention towards HIV, suicide, obesity, alcohol abuse and the great improvement needed in regard to their response to natural disasters would have to change drastically.
