Medical Negligence Reduction United Nations Development Programme

The United Nations Development Programme is one of the most important functions of the United Nations with its Administrator being third most highly ranked official within the whole of the United Nations hierarchy. The organisation has offices within 177 countries and can be seen as integrated with local governments to improve operations and meet targets and challenges to improve specific areas that need developing in the varies countries. The United Nations Development Programme is the main part of the United Nations development network which works on a global basis. The organisations has a multiply aims with the eradication of poverty and the total promotion of equality. It also focuses largely on assisting those countries especially those developing and under-developing countries in developing and sustaining policies so that they can effectively implement strategies using the countries capabilities to develop accordingly to meet targets and standards set.

Medical Negligence UNFundamental to the United Nations Development Programme is to ensure those that are suffering in ways have better lives through helping to maintain environmental sustainability, that countries are governed fairly and just, to promote security and help those that feel unsafe feel secure within their environment, effectively combat and prevent HIV/AIDS and implement developments in all possible areas. These areas mentioned make up the main part of the United Nations Development Programmes Millennium Developmental Goals (MDG’s). Within such goals is the core idea to develop and improves medical care which is not to the standard in which it should or could be and to bring those developing countries in to the era of the developed countries regarding medical care.

Health Developmental Goals; Improvement in Health Services and the Reduction in Medical Negligence

As part of the Millennium Developmental Goals there is huge emphasis on people’s health care and drastically improving and developing areas of health services people receive in developing countries. If a country has healthy people then it can function and achieve more so than if some people of another country are not as healthy as they could be, as the people are the wealth of any country and if are fit and able can keep that country alive. If a country looks after its core function then those people will strive to ensure that that country thrives. The United Nations along with its development programme have clearly realised that a healthy country performs at a much higher standard and therefore continues to promote not only the development of good health in developing counties but also greatly involve themselves within such countries health structure in order to improve the health services of developing countries.

Many see Medical Negligence as a person being harmed or injured through the fault of a medical physician through the treatment or medication received or in some cases lack of and although such a statement is valid medical negligence or medical mal practice can take on varies forms i.e. medical equipment used for important testing can go unused either because hospitals and medical centre within developing countries do not have the expertise and knowledge in how to use them or the power supply is not efficient enough to allow the equipment to work effectively therefore some consider this as negligence as people suffer due to the incapability’s of the health care service. With the help of programmes such as this organisation offers such negligence can be eradicated as peoples knowledge is improved.

United Nation Development Programme Plao

The United Nations Development Programme in Plao works to bring about a better way of life for those that live within the country. Within the last year many new frame works have been put in place to open up new channels and avenues to improve and develop in areas such as the economy, Human Rights, Justice and laws, education, food and nutrient but to name a few all which have been overseen by the United Nation Development Programme. One of the Millennium Goals set out by the UNDP is to eradicate poverty which involves the right to live a healthy life and receive adequate medical care. With the UNDP promoting such importance on health and their efforts to eradicate poor health service which subsequently reduces medical error and medical negligence which can so easily occur if standards are not continually met and maintained the level of service within Lao has improved impressively.

Medical Negligence PreventionWithout such organisations as the United Nations and programmes they provide such as the United Nations Development Programme developed countries may not have had the opportunity to thrive as they are doing, it is fair to say that with some individual countries there is still a long way to go and much more effort is needed but for others the results are clear and improvements dually noted.



The UN Prevention of Medical Negligence

The Unite Nations which is a worldwide organisation that consists of 193 independent state members was first introduced after the British victory of World War 2 in 1945. The United Nations began with 51 member states, which main head quarters is based in New York and was first founded due to the failings of the League of Nations to prevent a second world war from taking place. The League of Nations was formed shortly after World War One and its main aim was the prevention of any further wars after the devastation and up evil the First World War caused on some countries. It was an international body with the major task to solve disputes between countries so that conflict remained at a minimum, however the League of Nations were ineffective at keeping the peace which resulted in another world war. A major failing of the League of Nations was the fact that when it came to physical sanctions they had no military army of their own nor could any member state be forced to use theirs which was lined out in the terms of the League of Nations.

Medical ClaimsIt goes without saying that after yet another world war in just over a decade there needed to be an international body that could enforce physical sanctions through the use of military action. The United Nations goes above and beyond the workings, aims and objectives that was set out for the League of Nations, true, its main task is to promote and secure peace throughout however it is also has further goals which include; the effective implementation of Human Rights, tackle Global Warming and protecting the land, promoting economic and social development and but not exclusive to providing help when natural disasters take place.

The United Nations a very powerful entity has been very rightly awarded for its effective peace keeping and development programs, including the United Nations Developmental Programme which works on a global level. Critics of the United Nations do not believe that it has acted in ways as it should have, however there is no denying that it has implemented changes throughout its international standing. Its development programs within developing and underdeveloped programs are evidence of such working especially when it comes to the improvement of peoples health.

The United Nations and Medical Negligence

Medical Negligence happens worldwide and is not just apparent in developing countries that do not have up to date medical practices and equipment as developed countries have. It seems that in recent years medical negligence has been on the increase which can be confusing due to the introduction of many new advances not only in medicine but also in the technologies that the medical environment have within reach. Many argue that the increase within statics could be for many reasons and are not solely due to the fact that medical malpractice is on the rise.

Since the founding of the United Nations a particularly important factor has been to encourage and effectively promote good health internationally and provide people with avenues to receive medical and health care and at a standard that should reduce the amount of medical errors. Good health and health practices are seen as a human right and that each and every individual has the right to receive a good standard of health care. Such right has been enumerated in several different international agreements as people’s health should always be highly valued. So that individual receive the health care they are entitle to the United Nations put together the World Health Organisation (WHO) to promote effective health practices.

The World Health Organisation (WHO)

The World Health Organisation came in to practice as early as 1948 and has to date provided the world with amazing health care and health care advances continuing their work to prevent many serious diseases and even go beyond has to eradicate small pox. Good health practices are maintained and sustained to prevent any medical errors and negligence that may have once occurred and such health practices are taken very seriously by WHO, an organisations that works within a 147 countries and not only to provide a amazing health care services but also advise the ministries of health. WHO intervene and provide their services when crisis strikes and humanitarian aid is needed to help those that are most in need and to establish the outbreak of serious disease and to stop such diseases from spreading. It is vital to say that not all health causes and programs are run through the World Health Organisation many organisation within the United Nation promote and implement good health programs.
